Clover, Darlene E. – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2015

Dorling, Danny – Adults Learning, 2010

Brock, Colin – European Journal of Education, 1981
In England and Wales the lack of effective articulation between each adjacent sector of formal education within the public system of education is characteristic. It is seen as likely that deeply ingrained characteristics of dualism, elitism, and extreme localization will prevent real improvement in articulation. (Author/MLW)

Vincent, Carol; Martin, Jane – Journal of Education Policy, 2000
Considers discussion-based parents' forums at two British secondary schools. Each school has attracted an elite group of white, middle-class professional women with limited decision-making power that remains unconnected to the wider parent body. It is difficult for controversial parental issues to be heard. (Contains 39 references.) (MLH)
