Pulling No Punches: Young People Talk about Their Experiences at School
Bello, Bilikus
International Journal on School Disaffection, v2 n2 p5 2004
After being expelled from her mainstream girls' school, Bilikus, whose parents are Turkish and African, spent a year at Daniel House Pupil Referral Unit (PRU), a small alternative high school. At the end of her year there, she took seven GCSEs, which are intensive exams taken at the end of compulsory schooling and a prerequisite for college. During that time, she was involved in the production of "Beneath the Hood", a documentary discussed in this issue by Annie Cornbleet in her paper Arts Education and the Disaffected Student. Bilikus is now in further education and hopes to go to university.
