Educational Reform and School Choice in England and Wales.
West, Anne; Pennell, Hazel
Education Economics, v5 n3 p285-305 Dec 1997
Examines educational reforms relating to school choice introduced in England and Wales by Conservative governments. Evaluates whether choice has increased, and for whom, and whether desired achievement standards have been met. The range of schools has increased and student performance has improved. However, curricular diversity is constrained by the British National Curriculum, and choice primarily benefits higher income families. (47 references) (MLH)
