About The Book

This work considers the extent to which Wales has develped its own educational agenda in a range of areas from primary school to higher education. The limitations of this autonomy in relation to London are also examined.


"...this topical collection of essays merits attention as much for the scope and diversity of the perspectives they present as for the authority of its contributors...strongly recommended as an authoritative review of education policy study pertaining to Wales." British Journal of Educational Studies

'...a worthwhile addition to most educational libraries and a useful port-of-call for anyone seeking a ready overview of how education in Wales evolved to its present state.' History of Education
