The English Education System: An Overview of Structure and Policy. A Briefing Paper.
Department for Education and Employment, London (England).
This paper provides an overview of the education system in England and of the government's policies for the education service. The paper offers a summary rather than a comprehensive guide for England only. There are some similarities with other parts of the United Kingdom, but there also are some differences with Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The paper is divided into nine chapters, including: (1) "The Structure of Education in England"; (2) "Key Facts"; (3) "Funding and Efficiency"; (4) "Qualifications"; (5) "Improving Quality and Standards"; (6) "Choice and Diversity"; (7) "Autonomy and Accountability"; (8) "Participation"; and (9) "Outputs." Two annexes conclude the document. (EH)
