The last quarter of the twentieth century was a very important period in history of education. Beginning with the so-called 'Great Debate', the period witnessed intense public and political interest in educational issues, culminating in an almost unprecedented amount of education-related legislation, the most symbolic of which was the Education Reform Act of 1988. Some scholars have rightly claimed that the education system was 'transformed' during this period, pointing to major changes in the ways in which schools, further education colleges and universities were organised, managed and controlled. Others have claimed that these changes altered the power relationships which had underpinned the education system since 1944. Given the sheer scale and pace of the education-policy related reforms of this period, this edited collection brings together some of the leading scholars in education to reflect on the major legislative and structural changes in education over the past few decades. Published in the year of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Callaghan's Ruskin College speech in 1976, it provides a definitive contemporary history of education policy in the late twentieth century. The editors bring together some of the leading educationalists to reflect on the major legislative and structural changes in the field over the last twenty five years. The book will be of use to education students on undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as students and academics working in social policy.

Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, citizenship education has been revived as a theoretical discourse and focus for pedagogical enquiry, with specific concern for practice in schools. These have taken particular directions where citizenship has sometimes appeared as a statutory subject and at others as a cross-curricular theme, both ways generating ideas and contestations, as well as prescriptions for classroom practitioners. Such philosophical and pedagogical momentum has occurred at a time of unprecedented global change, accompanied by an ongoing struggle to conceptualize citizenship in a manner that is inclusive and acceptable to all, and yet which is also capable of embracing a spirit of critical inquiry. This book gives a level of discourse that is central to scholars of education, including advanced undergraduate students and research specialists, whilst not precluding interest from critically inquisitive classroom practitioners. This is achieved by developing a series of entry points to themes that presently articulate with the statutory order for citizenship education: human rights, politics of identity, race, ethnicity, social justice, monarchy and subject-hood, and the challenge of global inter-dependence. The book also raises critical issues that articulate with notions of identity and self and other, and which underpin key debates of the themes for contemporary citizenship.

Richard Aldrich, Emeritus Professor of History of Education, retired in 2003 after a 30-year career at the Institute of Education, where he continues to serve as Public Orator. In his scholarship, Aldrich has particularly emphasised the importance of historical perspectives and the relationship between the educational past, politics and policy-making. This wide-ranging volume of ten essays, by fellow historians of education who have been privileged to work closely with Aldrich, takes up the theme of history, politics and policy-making, examining such diverse themes as motherhood, gender, race, school curricula and inspection, the teaching of reading, approaches to educating gifted children, economic and historical perspectives on educational policy-making, university politics and national security. Controversies about politics and policy-making are to be found in each of these chapters, which demonstrate how an understanding of the historical past may help us to set in context current educational issues. The volume includes an introduction that pays tribute to Aldrich’s leadership of the educational history field in the UK and overseas and a comprehensive listing of his major writings.

"This book provides a context for understanding educational policies which is currently missing from education and social policy courses. It should be compulsory reading." - Len Barton, University of Sheffield* What have been the positive and negative effects of education reforms in recent years?* Why are the moderate successes of state education unrecognised and education portrayed as 'failing' or in crisis?* How has the reproduction of privilege by education persisted despite a rhetoric of equality and inclusion?Education in a Post-welfare Society provides a concise and critical overview of education policy, as government in Britain has moved from creating a welfare state to promoting a post-welfare society dominated by private enterprise and competitive markets. Concentrating particularly on the past twenty years, Sally Tomlinson places in context the avalanche of legislation and documentation that has re-formed education into a competitive enterprise in which young people 'learn to compete'. She also demonstrates how a relatively decentralised education system became a system in which funding, teaching and curriculum were centrally controlled, and education narrowed to an economic function. Chronologies of education acts, reports and initiatives are provided at the beginning of the first six chapters. Major legislation is summarised, and an extensive bibliography and annotated suggestions for further reading provide additional guidance. The result is an invaluable resource for students of social policy and education, as well as educational researchers and professionals.
