Education and Society

This blog takes a look at current issues and developments in education, it examines how education is represented in popular media and aims to provide a sociological understanding and critique of this.

The photograph on the header is taken from a 1907 school photograph of Staindrop, near Barnard Castle, Co. Durham.  It features members of the Leonard family (and others no doubt!), antecedents of mine.
