Good Research But Flawed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Educational Failure and Working Class White Children in Britain (Paperback)
Overall an excellent book. The observations and conclusions are logical and make sense. But, it still assumes the failure is due to working class students inadequacy and the inadequacy of the state education system rather than the lack of impartiality by external examiners. One serious flaw is that failure is somehow an act of rebellion against the system when educational success will be more important to working class students than their more privileged and usually more successlful competitors.
