Scharf, Jan; Hadjar, Andreas; Grecu, Alyssa – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Many approaches to explaining educational inequalities relate explicitly and implicitly to benefits of education, and rational choice theories in particular consider monetary benefits.

Stewart, Kitty; Campbell, Tammy; Gambaro, Ludovica – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Evidence suggests that early education can promote children's development and narrow attainment gaps between those from lower-income and higher-income families.

Seghers, Marie; Boone, Simon; Van Avermaet, Piet – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Social class differences in educational decision-making form an important explanation for persisting educational inequalities, particularly in choice-driven systems with early tracking.

This article considers a recent policy initiative in assessment in English primary schools (ages 5-11 years) in which curriculum 'levels' used by teachers to judge pupils' attainment were suddenly removed. Previous work has largely focused on assessment of pupils, but we examine assessment as an activity through which teachers reproduce their…

Since the mid-1990s, important education policy changes, such as the growth of Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) schools and the reform of the medium of instruction (MOI) policy, have been made in Hong Kong. Little is known about their impact on school segregation and educational inequality. We address this issue using six successive cycles of the…

Since the late 1990s, increased public and academic attention has been focused on topics related to bullying and peer aggression in schools, yet these behaviors have proven difficult for schools to address.
