Towards Whole System Improvement
Glatter, Ron
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v54 n3 p411-416 2012
The relationship between academies, and school autonomy more generally, and the wider system is a crucial issue in the battle to improve school-level education. International experience indicates that emphasising choice and competition to drive improvement is not effective and that changing structures does not yield better results for students. A whole system approach is required based on a strong and democratic multi-level infrastructure of support and a common administrative and legal framework underpinned by the principles of public not contract law. (Contains 22 notes.)
