Summary:
"Academies and Free Schools in England argues that there is a high degree of philosophical consensus and historical continuity on the policy of 'academisation' across the main political parties in England. It attempts to make sense of what are all essentially free schools by interviewing the architects of policy and their closest advisors, analysing the extent to which they invoke historical expressions of conservatism and/or liberalism in their articulation of that convergence" -- Provided by publisher.
