The Privatisation of Education
Chitty, Clyde
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v51 n1 p73-84 2009
This article looks at one of the dominant themes of English education over the past twenty years. It examines the various ways in which privatisation has affected schools and schooling since the early 1980s. It may no longer be possible to indulge in a blanket defence of the public sector; but we do at least have to recognise that privatisation in general and the spread of Academies in particular pose a very real threat to the values and principles underpinning "a national system, locally administered".
