Contextual Admissions and Affirmative Action: Developments in Higher Education Policy in England
Lane, Laura; Birds, Rachel
Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, v17 n4 p135-140 2013
This paper explores the value of explaining contextual admissions policy directives through the conceptual lenses of meritocracy and social reproduction. It is suggested that examining these concepts can assist in highlighting some of the ideological and practical complexities associated with contextual admissions whilst providing opportunities to engage with wider debates concerning affirmative action in higher education policy.
