'What an important book - and one that should worry us all. Thank goodness for truth-tellers like David and Ben Scott.'
'A thoughtful and thought-provoking book. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how inequalities in the English education system have arisen and are perpetuated.'
'This is a brilliant book for anyone seeking to understand education in England today. Theoretically robust and forensic in its analysis, the authors have provided us with authoritative and richly illustrated accounts that are both informative and potentially transformative. David Scott and Ben Scott can be congratulated for writing a book that is both accessible and provocative. A self-avowed "work in progress", it is a warning against complacency.'
