Image and Experience of Contemporary Public Schools: Informal Processes and the Post-School Transition.
Tovey, Philip
Educational Studies, v18 n1 p95-105 1992
Considers the role of informal networks in securing occupational advantage for graduates of British "public" schools. Discusses the private sector's official view of the situation and the experiences of recent students. Reports that the official view is of a meritocratic situation, whereas individual students believe personal connections are more important, though only for an elite group. (DK)
