"Not I"
I want to find out about the extent to which school pupils and university students are discouraged by English teachers/lecturers from using the first person pronoun in essays.

Does anyone know whether recent-ish research has been carried out on that topic - or where might be a good place to look for it?

Commenting mainly so that I am reminded to come back to this post, as I'd like to know the answer too! I would dearly like to live in a world where I don't have to train that back out of them at University level.
