The case studies are intended to complement the quantitative component of the study reported earlier. The previous section describes, in the statistical sense, the relationships between values education and academic diligence, school coherence, school ambience, student-teacher relationships, student and teacher wellbeing, as well as parental and family participation. The case studies, however, are intended not so much to describe the relationships but more to explain them. As with all case study research, these eleven case studies cannot provide generalised findings. Each case study is a separate and localised account of school approaches to values education and teacher perceptions of its effect upon academic diligence, school ambience, student teacher relationships, student and teacher wellbeing, as well as parental and family participation.
