This chapter provides an overview of the influential contribution of Professor Maurice Galton to knowledge about life in schools and classrooms, through his research and numerous publications over some five decades. It identifies the various themes examined by Galton in his research studies, many of which have had a major impact on educational policy and practice, and other researchers, not only in the United Kingdom but also in other countries worldwide. The chapter goes onto place Galtonís work in context by examining the various changes in attitudes to teaching and learning which have taken place over the past five decades during which time he has investigated life in classrooms principally in England and Hong Kong
