Can Governments Improve Higher Education through "Informing Choice"?
Davies, Peter
British Journal of Educational Studies, v60 n3 p261-276 2012
Over the past decade higher education policy in England has gradually switched from a stance of "government as purchaser" to "government as informer". During 2012 this policy stance has been intensified through new requirements for the advice provided by schools and the introduction of "Key Information Sets" which are intended to "drive up quality" through informed choice. This paper documents this policy shift and subjects it to critical scrutiny. (Contains 7 notes and 2 tables.)
