Education Policy and Social Class in England and New Zealand: An Instructive Comparison.
Thrupp, Martin
Journal of Education Policy, v16 n4 p297-314 Jul-Aug 2001
Explores the "middle-class pressure thesis"--the extent that recent education policy in England under New Labour may be shaped by responses to an increasingly large and anxious middle class. New Zealand, with similar market reforms, developed a less class-conscious, more egalitarian approach. (Contains 93 references.) (MLH)
