What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This is a book that will challenge both the intellect and the imagination. It should also appeal to a wide reading public and generate vigorous debate about the validity of many long-standing beliefs relating education to social and economic changes. I can best do justice to this book by quoting the words of a reviewer of some twenty years ago who concluded by saying: 'there is so much of value in this book. Just please read it. You will enjoy and profit from it.' - Clive Whitehead, Education Research and Perspectives
