Understanding and Enhancing Pupils' Learning Progress in Schools in Deprived Communities
Dann, Ruth
Education 3-13, v44 n1 p19-31 2016
This paper draws on data from the "Raising Pupil Attainment in Key Stage 1 in Stoke-on-Trent" research project. The particular focus is on how teachers, head teachers and teaching assistants (n?=?59) articulate pupils' learning success in five highly achieving schools in deprived communities. Six key themes are highlighted which are identified by participants as influencing successful pupil learning and progress. These are analysed in relation to Biesta's theory on the parameters of "Good Education" [Biesta, G. J. J. 2010. "Good Education in an Age of Measurement". Boulder, CO: Paradigm] and within Bourdieu's understanding of "distinction" [Bourdieu, P. 1998. "Practical Reason: On the Theory of Action". Oxford: Polity Press]. The research reveals that issues related to socialisation and subjectivity are presented as critical and foundational for the more formal measures of success in pupil learning.
