The Future Is Not What It Used to Be
Tomlinson, Sally
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v57 n3 p263-276 2015
This article briefly overviews the likely future of education as planned after the 2015 Conservative election success. Although education was not a major item in election manifestos or in subsequent discussion, the Department for Education claims that it is rolling out one of the most ambitious education reform movements in the world. How the break-up of a national public educational system is being achieved, primarily through an academies programme and a changed assessment system, and a requirement that all educational institutions, including universities, become competitive businesses, needs far more debate and understanding than any political party is currently willing to undertake.
