4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive review
I enjoyed this comprehensive summary of the policy angles of the various parties in the debate on education. The book touches on international issues but is `primarily seen through the lens of the United Kingdom, particularly England. I recommend it as a good read for anyone who wants to refresh their memory of recent history and give themselves a perspective on the...

3.0 out of 5 stars education debates
This book presents some interesting perspectives on the education debates happening currently with some good background material and history. A lot to read and get through ; perhaps some sort of brief timeline or diagram of educational policy and debates through the ages would have made some of the ideas more concrete and easier to grasp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive review, 9 Dec. 2014
This review is from: The Education Debate (Policy and Politics in the Twenty-first Century) (Paperback)
I enjoyed this comprehensive summary of the policy angles of the various parties in the debate on education. The book touches on international issues but is `primarily seen through the lens of the United Kingdom, particularly England. I recommend it as a good read for anyone who wants to refresh their memory of recent history and give themselves a perspective on the evolving debate. Stephen Ball does an excellent job of keeping back his personal opinion even when the wasted opportunities, bureaucratic nightmares and systemic failures are more than evident.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, readable, informative, 17 Jan. 2014

Great book - much more 'reader friendly' than some of Ball's published work. Well structured and informative. Never used a Kindle book before and I loved all the Kindle features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great debate on Education policy, 28 Mar. 2014

This review is from: The Education Debate (Policy and Politics in the Twenty-first Century) (Paperback)
This is by far one of the best books I have read on education and its politics. I am currently using it for my dissertation and its been brilliant. The author is very profound and the book seem a easy read (if you are into this kind of stuff). As a second edition it has included recent debates on education policy from New Labour to the coalition. I will totally recommend for anyone who wants to explore more on debates on education policy. Absolutely fascinating.
