Educational Achievement: Professor Becky Francis

In this short (10 minute) interview, (recorded in 2009 in what looks and sounds like a cupboard somewhere…apologies for the less than pristine sound quality and video), Professor Becky Francis talks about her research into educational achievement.

The film touches on a number of areas in the sociology of education that teachers and students will find useful:

• Methods in education (qualitative and quantitative)

• Characteristics of high-achieving pupils

• Managing and maintaining identities

• Education and social policy

• Lads – and ladettes

• Chinese pupils and achievement – pressures and processes.
