Do you find it difficult to keep up with the changes in education policy? This essential book takes a historical perspective to illuminate current educational issues. The authors draw on documentary evidence to describe, record and analyse education policy in England and Wales since the Second World War. Inside, you will find in-depth interviews with a number of former Education Ministers, and others who were directly involved in the development and implementation of education policy. Key decision-makers such as David Blunkett, Ed Balls and Michael Gove are asked to discuss the historical context of their period of office and to consider the lasting legacy of the policies they have been responsible for. This is a must-read for Masters level students on education courses and PGCE programmes. It will be a valuable resource to undergraduates studying modern history and social policy, as well as international students who wish to gain an insight of the English education system. From Butler to Calls and beyond, this book provides a unique insight into the impact and legacy of education policy.
