Exploring Governance in Two Chains of Academy Schools: A Comparative Case Study
Salokangas, Maija; Chapman, Christopher
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v42 n3 p372-386 May 2014
Although the number and size of academy chains in England is still increasing, the implications of these arrangements at a local level remain under-researched. This article reports findings from a comparative case study focusing on governance arrangements and sponsor involvement in two chains of academies. The findings suggest that the policy and practice of these multi-academy sponsors define the autonomy of the individual academies within the chains, so that the level of autonomy individual academies experience varies significantly between, as well as within, chains.
