This talk examines the problem as it is understood by British politicians and policymakers: as a result of a lack of discipline and aspiration. Against this a more complex explanation for educational underachievement is offered, which rests on the concept of a set of binds, or barriers, which interrupt learning. These insights reveal children's school lives to be highly challenging, despite their ingenuity and effort in trying to overcome the challenges that they face.
