Key Features

  • An ambitious but timely project made readable and specific by the use of a case-based approach - a book of this range and type has not been attempted since the early 20th century
  • Written by a known expert in the field and therefore individualistic - but with a real insider's attributes of being able to discriminate between what does and does not matter - the insider viewpoint - especially of someone so recently involved at the centre of political and educational debate
  • The overall theme of "regulation" covers not just the professionals' viewpoint but also the public's - and therefore covers political influences on the educational and regulatory process
