Archer, Louise; Francis, Becky; Miller, Sarah; Taylor, Becky; Tereshchenko, Antonina; Mazenod, Anna; Pepper, David; Travers, Mary-Claire – British Educational Research Journal, 2018
"Setting" is a widespread practice in the UK, despite little evidence of its efficacy and substantial evidence of its detrimental impact on those allocated to the lowest sets. Taking a Bourdieusian approach, we propose that setting can be understood as a practice through which the social and cultural reproduction of dominant power…

Codiroli Mcmaster, Natasha – British Educational Research Journal, 2017
The relative lack of students studying post-compulsory STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects is a key policy concern.

Despite a recent world-wide upsurge of academic interest in moral and character education, little is known about pupils' character development in schools, especially in the UK context. The authors used a version of the Intermediate Concept Measure for Adolescents, involving dilemmas, to assess an important component of character--moral…

Harfitt, Gary James; Tsui, Amy B. M. – British Educational Research Journal, 2015
The question of how class size impacts on student learning has been debated for some time, not least because it has substantial financial implications for educational policy.
