UNSPECIFIED. (1997) A critique of the existing research into small primary schools. BRITISH JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL STUDIES, 45 (3). pp. 235-247. ISSN 0007-1005Full text not available from this repository.
Major studies carried out in the United Kingdom on small primary schools are drawn upon and evaluated. It is argued that research in this area is flawed for the following reasons: there is no agreed definition of a 'small primary school'; investigations have been biased in their favour as a result of problems in research design and the ways in which data have been analysed; and, finally, there has been a neglect of certain key issues, notably those affecting pupil grouping.
