Angrist, Joshua – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2022

Successive governments, in embracing a neoliberalist ideology of decentralization and privatization, have radically reformed the nature of community-based, comprehensive state education. The transition from 'government to governance' (Rhodes, 1997) combined with the ideology of academization (DfE, 2010a) has created a democratic deficit1 (Corbett,…

Smith, Spencer J. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2022
Most studies of No-Excuses charter schools are distributive in nature.

Vinall, Caroline – Management in Education, 2022
Multi-Academy Trusts (MAT) have developed organically in England since 2010. As a result, there appears to be a lack of consistency in the interpretation of delegated responsibilities of Local Governing Bodies (LGB). In a small-scale study of Headteacher (HT) accountability within one English MAT, governance was revealed as a major cause for…
