  • I am a professor of education at the Thomas Coram Research Unit where I research social and educational policy and practice towards children in the UK and elsewhere, with a strong focus on the role of social pedagogues in continental Europe. My recent work has been about play and childcare; services for disabled children and their families; and children in residential and foster care. The changing nature of educational services in England and other countries, and the expansion of the school, are on-going themes. My work attracts national and international attention.
