Product Overview

Staying on after minimum leaving age has long been a key indicator of the distribution of educational opportunity and life chances. It has been a major component of the expansion of school and post school education in Britain in the closing quarter of the 20th Century. This pamphlet offers an overview of staying on and reports a major recently completed study. This contrasts the visible and hidden roles of the schools and identifies the strategies of guidance and curriculum control employed by schools to retain able and committed students at 16+ and to impede their transfer to further education. It also highlights schools' strategies to discourage 'unwanted' students from staying on. Policy, race and gender issues are considered in the light of British government plans for the major expansion of school and further education
