    Policies overview

    1944-79: TRIPARTITE SYSTEM {1944 EDUCATION ACT)

    Main aims:
    • Abolish class inequalities, making secondary education free for all
    • based on meritocratic principles that 11+ exam would sift & Sort children fairly according to ability
    • schools were to have parity of esteem (equal status and value) *go into more detailed for this Ddefinition, how did it lack parity of esteem*


    Involved: selecting allocating to Grammar/SecondaryModern/Technical schools according to result on 11+ exam. * explain each of these *

    Eval.

    • Tripartite system legitimated inequality through ideology that ability is in born
    • Unfair, cultural bias- favour white MC, disproportionally against WC. - Selected for Secondary modern which had a poor image- seen as failing, meaning WC= low self esteem
    • MC who fail go to private sector
    • Thus Not reliable measurement of intelligence
    • MID 1950s saw this policy as filed in aims.
    • Educational attainment= class based
    • WC left school and work MC- College/University

    note: i have just broadly outline this policy, its more detailed on the original notes ive made so let me know if you want them!

    Self-fulfilling prophecy
    when a pupil comes to live up to the label given him/her.




    Three functions that education may perform


    -teaching specialist skills
    • creating social solidarity
    • teaching shared values
    • a bridge between family and wider society
    • role allocation
    • creating obedient workers
    • justifying inequality.




    working-class under-achievement in education is the result of home circumstances and family background.


    parental interest/education,
    early socialisation,
    family structure and roles,
    speech codes, linguistic,
    cultural and material deprivation, cultural capital,
    class subcultures, deferred gratification, compensatory education etc


    Analysis and evaluation may be developed, for instance, by
    contrasting material and cultural explanations, or considering the relationship between
    factors within and outside school.
    theorists: Blackstone and Mortimore, Douglas, Bernstein, Bereiter and Engelmann, Halsey et al, Ball et al, Boudon, Bourdieu, Hyman, Sugarman, Keddie, Smith and Noble, Howard et al.


    ‘sampling frame’.
    a list of the research population.




    2 social factors that could be used in the creation of a stratified sample,
    ethnicity
    • marital status
    • housing tenure
    • age
    gender


    2reasons why sociologists might use structured interviews
    -easier comparison of data
    • less time-consuming
    • lower cost
    • filters out irrelevant material
    • less intrusive.




    p.obv issues
    validity, reliability, comparison and representativeness; issues of authenticity/verification;
    availability; accessibility; Hawthorne Effect; cost; time; researcher training; ethical
    issues such as confidentiality and informed consent; utility in relation to different
    research contexts and issues.
