This fascinating book focuses on those who are most affected by changes in education policy and systems-the pupils. It draws on empirical evidence from a number of research projects and distils this into a compelling account of contemporary schooling from the pupils' perspective.

Jean Rudduck calls for a shift in the way we currently view young people at school and sets out a case for radically rethinking aspects of school organization, relationships and practice. Her research confirms that we need to see pupils differently, to re-assess their capabilities and reflect on what they are capable of being and doing.
