In this up-to-date introduction to a key policy area, Paul Trowler puts current education policy into context by showing how it has evolved over time and in response to different political ideals. He examines what education policy is, how it is formulated and, crucially, how implementation processes affect outcomes. He looks at the key issues facing the government today and at how the research process feeds into policy-making. This concise guide, suitable for student or professional, features:

* policy landmark tables

* illustrative case studies

* summaries of key points

* guides to further reading
