Back to the future: the return of a c19th education?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Imagine the English education system 50 years from now. There is a wealth of choice in terms of the kind of school to which you could send your child. Successive governments have loosened the noose around state schools and they have finally been privatized, allowed to make a profit and to compete with one another in terms of the standard of content offered and value for money. The result has been that due to intense competition a few Multi-Schools have come to dominate the educational landscape; just like supermarkets, each town and city has seen RyanBasic, EasyLearn, Virgin Opportunity, EatonPaidagōgia etc., enter the market. Our study offers a philosophical exploration of a novel educational experiment designed to attract parents to purchase a low cost grammar school education in England.
