Osborne, Jonathan; Collins, Sue
International Journal of Science Education, v23 n5 p441-67 May 2001
Investigates pupils' perceptions of their experience with school science. Documents a range of views that pupils held about the science curriculum, aspects they found either interesting and/or valuable, and their views about its future content. Conducts 20 focus groups with 144 16-year-old students. Pupils' perspectives of school science reveal both their discontent and satisfaction with the existing curriculum. (Contains 60 references.)
