Like an "Uncontrolled Toddler" Elizabeth Truss Risks Causing Chaos in England's Nursery Education and Child Care Sector
Wadsworth, John
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v55 n3 p439-445 2013
This article looks at the impact of the Education and Childcare Minister on the provision of early childhood education and care in England. Policies being developed and promoted by Elizabeth Truss predate her appointment as a minister and are consistent with the radical neo-liberal agenda pursued by Secretary of State Michael Gove. The author draws on news articles and policy announcements and calls into question the misuse and abuse of international comparisons to justify changes to early years policy in England.
