Social Class and the Secondary School in 1930s Scotland.
Stocks, John
Scottish Educational Review, v34 n1 p26-39 May 2002

This class-biased system of selection had few critics because it favored the more articulate members of society. Opposition to the selection system was due more to convenience than to principle.
