This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book shows how the aspirational rhetoric of Dreamfields and English education policy does not do what it advertises. Race and class are being lived out in various ways through neoliberal regimes like Dreamfields which (re)produces difference differently. The book describes that instigating urban regeneration through education is framed as an obvious and neutral solution to deprivation, while serving as an effective response to the narratives of failure surrounding Urbanderry's education system. While Dreamfields is positioned as a tool transforming Urbanderry's urban culture, it also provides an 'oasis' ripe for middle-class colonisation. The book explains that nineteenth-century middle-class social reformers felt urban slums could be improved by a resident gentry bringing superior culture to these areas.
