The limitations of widening participation.

Gorard, S. (2013) 'The limitations of widening participation.', Adults learning., 25 (Winter). pp. 20-21.

Limitations to the number of marginal applicants and the number of places combine to make widening participation, as currently conceived, just about impossible. Increasing the pool of potential students is possible but efforts to do so are seriously hampered by a lack of robust evaluation, argues Stephen Gorard.
