British Labour Party Policy on Educational Selection 1996-8: A Sociological Analysis.
Webster, David; Parsons, Ken
Journal of Education Policy, v14 n5 p547-59 Sep-Oct 1999
Analyzes British Labour Party policy on educational selection in secondary schools, drawing on Mills's sociological imagination. Education selection figures prominently in distributional processes that (re)produce social relations within society. Achieving egalitarian ends is difficult while retaining consumerist spheres of influence stratified by money, status, power, and culture capital. (Contains 28 references.) (MLH)
