Innovation in Education -- England. Technical Report.
This publication is one in a series of case studies dealing with educational innovation in various western European countries and the United States. This particular report discusses educational innovation in England. Because the British central government is much less involved in educational matters than are many other governments, English educational innovations originate from diverse sources and tend to be very pragmatic in approach. For this reason, the author devotes much of her analysis to examining who the innovators are in English education, what they are trying to change, and where the obstacles to educational change lie. Three examples of recent innovations are described to illustrate different approaches to educational innovation in England. (JG)
