Abstract

In this paper, we discuss repent efforts to improve the safety of childrentravelling to and from New Zealand's largest primary school. The results of a travel survey completed by parents and pupils are reported, together with our recommendations for reducing congestion at the school gate and promoting healthy alternatives to car travel. Reflecting on this research, we find that market-oriented education reforms have provided schools with strongincentives Far increasing their roils-a course of action which may endanger pupils' well-being. At the same time, they have provided some schools with opportunities for resisting the present urban (dis)order and promoting community health. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
