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.
