This relatively minor issue soon expanded into a broad critique of Britain’s educational system. The one-day sit-in led to six weeks of intense debate, over 70 policy papers, and a prolonged confrontation with the local authorities. A special commission even conveyed the students’ demands to Parliament. Hornsey 1968 draws on previously unpublished archival material to present a full account of this seminal event.
