Description

A survey of English Village Schools with the aim to shatter middle class illusions that education is in a good way and that young people of the contemporary generation are better off than their forebears. Wise describes the schools by using three areas of investigation: Conditions, What is Taught, Outside Influences and comes to the conclusion that many schools are in an almost irreparable state.
