Schools in Disadvantaged Areas: Recognising context and raising quality

Ruth Lupton,  January 2004
Paper No' CASE 076: Read Abstract | Full paper (pdf)

The findings suggest that disadvantaged contexts impact on the organisation and processes of schools and that these effects differ significantly from one area to another, in ways that are not reflected by the usual indicators of disadvantage.
