Example text

At McGregor a distinction was made between school assembly and House assembly. School assembly involved two House groups on one day each week and was taken by either the Headmaster, Deputy Head or Senior Mistress, while House assembly was with one House alone, was taken by the Head of House and was held on three days each week. In observing a school assembly the researcher can pose a number of questions. Do the pupils stand or sit? Are they assembled in particular groups? Are all the pupils present?

In addition, she could also provide the responses that had been made by some of the teachers. One day when the Headmaster was out of the school, she remarked, ‘I bet you’d like to read some of the notes that the staff write to him [the Head] about all this’. I indicated that I had seen some notes from teachers to the Head as they were located in various files in her office. However, she claimed that I had seen relatively few as the Headmaster kept most of the correspondence from individual teachers in their confidential files in his office.

Furthermore, if we turn to the research reports and published monographs we find that there are few details provided on the initial research proposal and few clues about funding and the politics of research funding. Some comments in the light of personal experience have been provided by Stenhouse (1984) who indicates that the art of writing a research proposal to engage in case study research is to give the funding body what it requires while leaving sufficient flexibility for the researcher to carry out the exploratory programme of research.
