Class Strategies and the Education Market: The Middle Classes and Social Advantage

By Stephen J. Ball | Go to book overview

Appendix II

This will be brief. I want to give a very simple account of my working methods with the data which are deployed in this text. The samples are outlined in Appendix I.

My engagement with the data is a mix of old and new research technologies. The first point to make is that none of this is new data. In the case of the school choice data these transcripts have been coded at least three times and as many as five times. The other material at least once previously. Thus, this is data with which I am familiar. Nonetheless in the way of these things the new round of coding produced ideas and material that had not been attended to before. In part new questions were being asked but also in my experience data always has something more to give.

The coding to which I am referring above is mainly hand coding using pens, highlighter and a code notebook. My approach draws on techniques recommended by Anselm Strauss. However, all of these data were also stored in NuDist and were subject to various searches. This was particularly useful in generating code-based reports which could then be intensively coded within. For example, searches were run on such topics as setting, streaming, comprehensive, private, Oxford/Cambridge, trust, anxious/panic/worry, etc. These searches also made it possible to do distribution counts of topics within the samples and some of these are reported in the text. Still, the issues and topics identified in the text are not treated exhaustively. There is still work to be done. I will certainly be returning to this material.
