Death of David Raffe

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the unexpected death of Professor David Raffe who passed away on Sunday 15th February. David was Director of the Centre for many years, a distinguished scholar who made a great contribution to the field of Sociology of Education but also contributed hugely to the development of education policy in Scotland and beyond. His death is a great loss to the academic and educational communities to which he contributed and he will be much missed by many, especially his long-standing colleagues from CES.

CES carries out research in the social sciences of education that is independent, methodologically sound and that explores fundamental issues about the purposes and processes of education, and of policy in education, with a starting point in Scotland, but located in the wider framework of Europe.
Key research findings are summarised in a regular series of CES Briefings, edited by Dr Cathy Howieson. All Briefings can be downloaded, free of charge. If paper copy or multiple copies are required please contact Carolyn.
The research of the CES is published in a variety of forms including briefings for policy-makers and practitioners, articles in academic and professional journals, reports and books. Key research findings are summarised in a regular series of CES Briefings.

CES is based in the Moray House School of Education
