Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) with reference to his Department's publication, Your child, your schools, our future, how many and what proportion of the case studies were assessed against a control group; (286883)

(2) if he will place in the Library a copy of the quantitative analysis of data used in each of the case studies.

The case studies used in the recent White Paper—Your child, your schools, our future: building a 21st century schools system—are intended as individual examples of good practice from a range of partners and sources. They illustrate proposals within the document and support understanding through using real contexts. In using such cases, we did not consider it necessary to have a control group or to collect a full quantitative analysis of data.
