The Role of Nostalgia in School Choice.
Gorard, Stephen
School Leadership & Management, v18 n4 p511-24 Nov 1998
Examines factors influencing choice of a new school, using data from a large-scale study in Wales. The "domino effect" sometimes covers three generations; decisions made today reflect, but are not identical to, past decisions. Simple reproduction cannot explain this diversity. Consumer nostalgia may lead schools to conservatism and restorationism. (20 references) (MLH)
