Abstract

This article tracks recent developments in the debate about secondary school size.

The article explores various strategies for reconfiguring secondary schools into smaller learning communities or 'schools within schools' and argues that the appeal of smaller learning communities in schools springs from very different value positions which need to be clearly articulated and publicly debated.
