Term Definition
comprehensive schooling

a system of schooling in which children of all abilities from a particular area attend the one school. The ideal of thus creating a genuine social mix in terms of school population has been compromised in the UK by the lack of mixed housing in most urban areas a phenomenon which tends to make urban schools imbalanced in terms of  social class race and ethnic identity.
