Does School Choice Lead to "Spirals of Decline"?
Gorard, Stephen; Taylor, Chris; Fitz, John
Journal of Education Policy, v17 n3 p367-84 May-Jun 2002
Considers the notion of schools in a "spiral of decline," in which less popular schools within a market system lose numbers and increase their proportion of socially disadvantaged pupils over time. Using data derived from all secondary schools in England from 1989 to 1999, finds little evidence for any increase in the existence of such schools. (Contains 52 references.) (Authors/PKP)
