Education in Britain: 1944 to the Present
Education in Britain has been transformed over the last 50 years. State education systems have expanded hugely, and levels of achievement and participation have continuously risen. At the same time, society has become 'educationalizeda : the home, the workplace, the holiday and the playgroup are seen as sites for learning, in ways that increasingly connect to the acquisition of formally--defined skills and knowledges. Yet for most of the postwar period, education policy has been dominated by questions of 'failurea 'crisisa and 'declinea . Half a century of reform has far from eliminated substantial inequalities, and the 'conservatisma of education in the face of major cultural and economic change remains a central political issue. This book seeks to describe and explain the patterning of change and continuity in British education, and to account for the persistence of the controversies which have accompanied it. In doing so, it combines economic, political, cultural and social approaches to the study of education.

Whatever Happened to Progressivism?: The Demise of Child-centred Education in Modern Britain
In this professorial lecture Roy Lowe highlights important research on the debate on teaching in Britain in the post-Second World War era. He begins by reflecting on recent trends in the study of history of education and goes on to argue the need for research which is socially aware and sensitive to the political and social trends that underlie classroom practice. He also suggests that historians of education have something to say about the wider issues confronting the global community at this time. This lecture shows how stereotypes have developed around ways we perceive developments in teaching since 1944 and then suggests the need for a new look at the debate on the school curriculum. Important new research evidence is used to provide fresh insights into the debate on how children should be taught and what they should be taught in the years following the Second World War.
