The New Labour Government puts Education, Education, Education at the heart of its agenda but is it doing enough to combat educational disadvantage?
Combating Educational Disadvantage sets the discussion of educational disadvantage within the socio-political context of the 1980s and 1990s, with its market philosophy in education and brings together the contributions of leading writers and researchers of international standing.
