The notion of care has received considerable attention in relation to social services in the feminist literature (Dalley, 1988; Maclean and Groves, 1991). And many feminists have looked at the 'darker side' of motherhood in relation to child care, and child abuse and sexually violent men (Hamner and Statham, 1987; Hamner and Maynard, 1987; Kelly, 1988). Others have also looked at the more general issues to do with maternal employment Qoshi, 1989) and family changes (Kiernan and Wicks, 1990). The two exceptions to this are, however, Smith's exploratory feminist methodology and work on mothers and education, reprinted as The Everyday World as Problematic (1987a) and a fascinating if polemical reanalysis of a study of mothers' and daughters' relationships at home and at nursery school, which attempts to show the ideological construction of motherhood through social practices and regulation in relation to socialization and education.
I want to explore whether or not these kinds of changes in the form and nature of motherhood have affected the changing partnership between families and education, and in what ways. Whether schools accommodate to changing familial patterns and more variable family or parental responsibilities will be considered in so far as there is evidence available. These changes in family life, especially the role of mothers in employment and in responsibility for child-rearing, have inevitably been affected by parallel changes in education and social policies.

These concepts are often used ambiguously, particularly with regard to women's unpaid activities within the home or domestic sphere. Another way of discussing women's home-based work is to view it as a 'vocation', in the sense of it being a moral and social commitment rather than something which is seen as requiring financial reward.
