Select one (1) of the following terms: structuralism, economic capital, and social capital, and provide one (1) example of the term using your personal experience, from your family or work environment.
Social capital can be understood as a resource for
collective action, which may lead to a broad range of outcomes, of varying
social scale. Social capital can exist in family and community life, and is an
important feature of both. It is well known that good quality family
relationships are important to a whole range of outcomes for family members,
including the development of children. For example, networks of trusting and
reciprocal relationships developed among parents around children's schools, are
argued to provide more positive environments for children, and lead to better
educational outcomes for students). In this way, parents 'invest in' and
'benefit from' school-based relationships.
