Twenty Years of Schooling – Student reflections on their educational journeys

Nearly half of young people go into higher education today compared with around one in five 20 years ago. What do those who have grown up during this time make of their educational experiences?

These chapters give an insight into how one group of students at the University of Greenwich experienced the ‘education, education, education’ stressed so much throughout their lives at school, college and university as the most tested and intensively taught generation in history.

They bring sociological ideas to bear on their personal reflections, which are written in a lively style accessible to other students elsewhere, whether in higher education or thinking of going there. They will also be revealing for their teachers and parents. These reflections are a starting point for comparisons across the new system of ‘lifelong learning’.

Editor: Patrick Ainley
Patrick Ainley, the editor and teacher of the class who wrote these chapters, is Professor of Training and Education in the School of Education and Training at the University of Greenwich.
