About this book

This book provides a comprehensive understanding of how education has developed over the last 70 years within the United Kingdom. As education in Wales and Scotland continues to develop following increasing devolution, the contributors draw from personal accounts and practical experience to provide a comparison and evaluation of these differences. A critical stage in the history of education has been reached, particularly in light of the decision for Britain to leave the European Union: the authors explore the emergent fault lines and identify practical reforms.  While this book will undoubtedly be of interest to educational historians, it will also be a valuable reference point for educationalists, practitioners and politicians. The contributors unpick the larger role of education in the United Kingdom and propose practical ways forward amid a time of crisis.

About the authors

Robert McCloy was Director of Education and Chief Executive of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, UK. 

Reviews

“Six distinguished educationists are given an opportunity in this fascinating volume to reflect on UK schooling over the past 70 years. … I would imagine that the volume will also be particularly useful for readers wishing to see the picture across this period from a whole-of-the-UK perspective. …   it will be an indispensable resource on two ongoing questions. Who manages our schools? And who manages the managers?” (Dennis Richards, Church Times, February, 2019)
