Abstract

A Decade of Missed Opportunities in Further Education
he last ten years has seen a consolidation of a set of trends in our education system that connect marketization and social division. Looking back, the 1988 Education Reform Act and the Further and Higher Education Act of 1992 laid the ground for a drive to strengthen centralised policy direction in primary, secondary and further education. The diminution of local authority influence in schools and colleges that these laws heralded has led to a much tighter centralised control of local curricula: the material we want young people and to learn and how we want them to learn it.
