The UK 14-19 Education Reforms: Perspectives from a Special School
Feiler, Anthony
Support for Learning, v25 n4 p172-178 Nov 2010
The pilot research reported in this article is part of the Centre Research Study (CReSt) which evaluates the impact of the educational reform programme on schools, colleges and other centres in England. The article reports findings from one special school, based on interviews with teachers (including the headteacher), students and a parent. The aim of the article is to identify factors that appear to be having an impact on this special school, and these are presented under four headings: curriculum choice and flexibility; partnership challenges; concerns about Foundation Learning; and curriculum opportunities. This is a small-scale study, and the conclusions are tentative--future research will reveal whether the findings apply over time and to other special schools.
