(2004). Thus "promote good behaviour" (Text 2, line 15) and "tackling poor behaviour" (text 3, line 40) are used without an explicit statement of whose behaviour is being talked about.

For example, text 1 from 1997 contains the clauses "Rights go hand in hand with responsibilities."

Recent analyses of other education policies have suggested that inequality in the education system is increasing, for example, Taylor, Fitz and Gorard�s (2005) recent analysis of the impact of increased secondary school diversity on socio-economic segregation. By 2005, it is schools that have rights and the disempowerment of parents (that is of those parents whose children are seen as misbehaving) is complete: "schools have every right to expect parents� full support , not challenge, when it comes to discipline � at home and in school."

While the Queen�s speech of 17th May 2005 included a promise that "A bill will be introduced to give police and local communities new powers to tackle knives, guns and alcohol-related violence." New Labour�s evolving discourse on exclusion from school: mere political rhetoric or promoting educational inequality? However, the use of paratactic relations between clauses, particularly lists, continues to equate �violent offences� with the �unacceptable� standards of behaviour found by Ofsted in a minority of schools, where in fact these mostly consist of low-level classroom disruption. that a common example of this is that of processes being represented as 3. Thus, I am arguing that, in texts 2 and 3, a child behaving in a Equating pupils who persistently disrupt classes with those who commit violent acts suggests that violence is much more common than is actually the case and fuels a moral panic. Argumentation analysis (Fairclough, 2003, p. 81-83) and consideration of the value assumptions being made in each of the texts reveals considerable stability over time in the assumptions being made about parenting (see fig.

The article refers to the genesis of the content of the term 'social exclusion', its current usage and relation to a range of social processes (exclusion from securities and exposure to risks - including environmental risks, exclusion from the labour market, exclusion from mobility paths, etc.). Although the numbers who experience formal exclusion from school are small, it is well established that they are disproportionately members of marginalised groups: boys, black children, traveller children, children with special educational needs, looked-after children, poor children and other disadvantaged groups (Audit Commission, 1996; Daniels et al., 2003; Department for Education and Skills, 2004b; Hayden, 1997; Jordan, 2001; OFSTED, 1996; Osler & Hill, 1999; Osler et al., 2001; Social Exclusion Unit, 1998; Wilkin et al., 2005; Wright et al., 2000). Social cleansing can be understood as a geographical project made up of processes, practices, and policies designed to remove council estate residents from space and place, what we call a ‘new accumulative form of (state-led) gentrification’. �collocation� to refer to patterns in which words occur in proximity to each used to describe the relationship between the Press Notices and subsequent Even when implemented, the measures can barely handle the complex marginalized social, economic, and cultural situation of the Roma in the region. SFL starts at social on the Violent Crime Reduction Bill (Home Office, 2005) includes proposals to "there should be consistently applied rewards for good behaviour and sanctions to deal with misbehaviour" (text 3, line 87-88)). the notion of language function. I would suggest that this depersonalised construction is a grammatical metaphor(15) (Fairclough, 2003) which makes it easier to demonise the children whose �behaviour� is implicitly being referred to. In the case of exclusion from school, New Labour�s rhetoric is now constructing the �problem� as one of bad behaviour by individual children requiring a �solution� of discipline and zero tolerance. Moral arguments have featured prominently in debate about adolescent sex since the 1970s, when teen pregnancy was first named as a special problem. 1998/0483. This reflects not only the deepening of social inequalities in Britain over recent decades, but also a growing marginalisation of particular social groups and areas. Its objective is twofold: on the one hand, it represents a first step towards developing the methodological resources and best practices to investigate crime-related issues in real-life scenarios and, on the other hand, it helps to identify relevant issues related to the relationship between insecurity and the cultural dimension. This paper provides a discursive analysis of the UK Government's Social Exclusion Unit report Bringing Britain together: a national strategy for neighbourhood renewal (SEU, 1998a).

Other significant research trying to connect the urban literature with sociological concepts can be found in the work of Haylett (2001) on the poor white working--class residents of council housing estates (see also: Atkinson and Bridge, 2005). of policy announcements from White Paper, via Press Release to newspaper Truancy and School Exclusion. According to Fairclough (2003) paratactic relations serve to Through the study of the history of sexuality, madness and the disciplinary basis of the academy, Foucault, referring to what he called power/knowledge, developed the idea that knowledge, and hence discourse, is a reflection of power within society.
