This provocative collection of essays debates the application of market principles to and within the context of public education. The contributors are all distinguished practitioners and commentators in the field of education from LEAs, schools and higher education. All the contributions are presented in a straightforward argumentative style which is accessible to the lay reader. The book contains essays which defend as well as essays which challenge the application of market philosophy to education. This is a serious contribution to the philosophical debate and provides an up-to-date and carefully considered basis for consideration of these fiercely debated and hotly topical issues.
