Researching Resistance: Campaigns against Academies in England
Hatcher, Richard; Jones, Ken
British Journal of Educational Studies, v54 n3 p329-351 Sep 2006
This article uses social movement theory to analyse campaigns against a new type of government-sponsored school--the Academy--in four areas of England. It seeks to identify the social composition of anti-Academy campaigns, to track their encounters with proponents of the new schools and to describe the characteristic forms of their campaigning strategies. In doing so, the article aims to help place research into educational opposition and contestation closer to the centre of researchers agendas.
