Selfishness and Choice--The White Paper Exposed
Phillips, Jane
Management in Education, v20 n2 p36-37 2006
One has to feel sorry for Barry Sheerman. The latest White Paper buried him and his Education Select Committee under a veritable avalanche of paperwork. Evidence was submitted from all quarters and a large proportion was focused on that vexed question--selection. But it is not a return to selection that the author fears most from this White Paper. She has much greater fears about the ill-advised direction that is being taken with regard to all public services; a direction which is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of human beings and their needs. In this article, the author discusses the White Paper and the negative outcomes for parents--and more importantly children--when choice and selfishness march hand in hand.
