Reviews

"This book is an engaging and ambitious book that provides both an historical and a current perspective on widening participation issues. The ambition of the book means that the reader jumps quickly through topics, from fair access to drop out, from gender to ethnicity, from England to Ghana, but this broad perspective does mean that it informs the reader on most of the major widening participation debates in recent years." - Anna Vignoles, British Journal of Educational Studies
