Education has many institutional dimensions, and diverse social control issues can arise in a variety of settings. This chapter concentrates primarily on schooling for children in England, within what has generally been thought of as the state sector, and makes reference to disadvantaged pupils in particular. We begin with a brief note on the historical development and 'construction' of schooling. This is followed by discussions of approaches under New Labour and the UK Coalition government. The chapter then concludes with a local example from northern England, suggesting that there might be viable alternatives to 'top-down' discipline-orientated strategies as far as disadvantaged households and localities are concerned.
