Education Policy-Making in Wales
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Since the Education Reform Act of 1988, education policy-making in Wales has undergone considerable change. Although the Act had a centralizing impact, the framework was put in place for the development of a range of education policies which, in terms of their origins, creation and implementation, had distinctively Welsh characteristics. Now, with the establishment of a National Assembly in Wales, questions about the appropriate scope of policy-making in Wales have come to the forefront of political debate. The essays in this book consider the extent to which Wales has developed its own educational agenda in a range of areas from primary schooling to higher education. The contributors also examine the limitations of that autonomy in relation to London and speculate about the ways in which devolved governance is likely to influence the nature of education policies in Wales in the future. Education Policy-Making in Wales is the definitive study of the emergence of education policies in Wales since the 1988 Education Reform Act. It is the most complete analysis to date of a major element of state policy in Wales as well as contributing towards our understanding of devolved governance.
