Overview

British Private Schools: Research on Policy and Practice

Walford (education policy, U. of Oxford, UK) presents commissioned research literature on the British private educational sector (sometimes confusingly called the "public schools"). Eleven chapters examine such topics as the taxation advantages of the charitable status of the independent schools, the role of girls in schools formerly open only to boys, teacher sickness absence, parental choice determinants, and the role of choice in reproducing social capital.
