    Abstract

    The scholarship of Emeritus Professor Kevin Marjoribanks (1938-2006) was honoured at a symposium organised by the University of Adelaide on 6th November 2006. The present paper is based on the Inaugural Kevin Marjoribanks Memorial Lecture given as part of that symposium. The first aim of the present paper is to outline the main elements of Marjoribanks' Context Theory of Students' School Outcomes (2002). The Context Theory represented an attempt by Marjoribanks to integrate his main lifetime theoretical and empirical contributions to the understanding of inequalities in educational outcomes. Second, the paper describes some of Marjoribanks' research that supports and underpins his social context theory.
