Description - Going Comprehensive in England and Wales by David Crook
The transition of British secondary schools from predominantly selective to predominantly comprehensive started with the issuing of Circular 10/65 by the Department of Education and Science under a Labour Government in 1965. The intention was to transform a highly stratified system into a more equal one. However, tgis tsudy shows that the new system was in fact highly diverse and retained features of the selective system, thus preserving the middle-class advantage into the comprehensive era. The book drwas upon a range of documentary and historical sources, as well as information colected from the National Child Development Study of Pupils born in 1958.
