This chapter sketches out the key features of Dreamfields' ethos before reflecting on the historical trajectories that underpin how education, urban space and formations of race, class and gender are discussed. Current discourses draw on historical representations rooted in the development of industrial capitalism, classificatory mechanisms and empire. The chapter reflects on the methodological process of producing qualitative data. The 'structure liberates' ethos highlights the paradoxical contradictions of liberalism's reliance on freedom accessed through submission. Neoliberal governance accelerates these interventions focused on the site of the individual. Dreamfields' neocolonial stance of virtuous missionary saving urban children follows a long trajectory of interventions aimed at Britain's urban poor. Culford emphasises how Dreamfields creates a culture and belief structure that 'works' in urban areas. Foucault's work on the production of docile bodies through disciplinary mechanisms is pivotal to understanding Dreamfields' approach.
