Black, Alison – Review of Education, 2019
There are more pupils of secondary-school age in special schools in England than those of primary-school age. In 2016, 60% of the 88,009 pupils aged between 5 and 16 in special schools in England were of secondary age. This disproportionality can be viewed as an indication that inclusion of children with special educational needs in mainstream…

Stylianides, Andreas J. – Review of Education, 2019
Prior research showed that many secondary students fail to construct arguments that meet the standard of proof in mathematics. However, this research tended to use survey methods and only consider students presenting their perceived proofs in written form. The limited use of observation methods and the lack of consideration of students presenting…

Momo, Michelle S. M.; Cabus, Sofie J.; De Witte, Kristof; Groot, Wim – Review of Education, 2019
This paper systematically reviews the literature on the causes of leaving school early in Africa and Asia. Despite the improvement in primary school enrolment in the developing countries by 2015, the persistence of school dropout, however, renders this improvement almost insignificant. This leads to the necessity of observing the prolonged…
