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.

In recent years 14-19 education has been the subject of numerous reviews, innovations and policy changes. What can be learnt from this experience and do current policies incorporate this learning? In this book, leading experts on 14-19 education and training explore the concept of policy-learning and examine recent policies and policy-making in England and Scotland. They focus on three main types of policy-learning: learning from the experience of earlier policies, learning from local innovations and learning from comparisons with other countries, including ‘home international’ comparisons within the UK. They suggest that in order to meet current challenges in 14-19 education, it is not only the policies that need to change, but also the way in which policies are made. The book concludes by arguing that only a participative approach to policy-making, bringing together policy-makers, practitioners and researchers, can form the basis of a comprehensive strategy for improved policy learning. This book will be of interest to all those involved in, or affected by, policy-making in the increasingly high-profile and politically charged field of 14-19 education.

This 4-volume set brings together seminal articles and key writings on the theme of inclusion and diversity in education. The collection takes disability and special educational need as a starting point from which to develop a broader focus on a range of themes relating to learners who may be marginalised from educational opportunities. This includes for example members of minority ethnic communities, students excluded from schools or who are 'looked after' in public care, and other dimensions of exclusion arising from social class, gender or sexuality. The starting point for understanding inclusive education lies in social justice perspectives, and this forms the basis for the first volume. Volumes two and three focus on research aimed at developing more inclusive practices both at the levels of schools and school systems, and at the levels of inclusive pedagogy, enacted in the classroom and through the curriculum.Volume four reflects the range of voices in research on inclusive education, drawing on traditionally marginalised voices and those of learners in particular. Three cross-cutting themes are represented across all four volumes: a chronological approach, showing how key concepts and perspectives have developed in each area of the literature; identified groups of learners; developing more nuanced readings of how processes of exclusion and inclusion intersect dimensions such as disability, class and race; and, contexts for learning - such as urban education and global or comparative perspectives.
