Originally published in 1976,this survey of policy-making in secondary education in Britain from 1944-1977, analyzes the relationship between the politician and the educationist and the part each plays in the policy-making process, paying particular attention to the role of central and local government, the teachers’ organizations and the political parties. The volume illustrates how the anticipated importance of the teachers’ organizations in initiating changes in policy was ill-founded while the political parties made a valuable contribution.
