Eriksen, Ingunn Marie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019

Haugen, Cecilie Ronning – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
As part of neoliberal reforms, evidence-based practice is increasingly influencing teachers' work. In Norway, the American programme 'School-Wide Positive Behavioural Intervention and Support' (SW_PBIS) has been implemented in a great number of schools.

Souto-Otero, Manuel; Whitworth, Adam – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2017
"Delayed participation" in higher education (HE) is an increasingly important feature of modern HE systems in many countries.

Using data from a large-scale survey of Norwegian youth, the study examines the relationships that the performance in key academic subjects and aiming for higher education have with political socialization at home.

Baeck, Unn-Doris Karlsen – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2010
The study examines teachers' attitudes and experiences regarding home-school cooperation.

The empirical analyses are based on a mixed-methods approach with survey and…

Gorard, Stephen – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2008
This paper re-considers some of the evidence for low and declining social mobility in Britain, showing that one study based on a re-analysis of cohort figures appears to have had an impact on policy-makers out of all proportion to its scale and rigor. The study claimed to show that the income of parents and children were more closely related for…
