The Gove Legacy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Gove Legacy free pdf Michael Gove was, without question, a pivotal figure in British educational reform. The four years he was Secretary of State for Education and the five years the coalition was in office heralded a new era for school structures, examination systems, curricula design and content and the reassertion of purportedly 'traditional' values of 'academic' education. This team of experts, drawn from academia, think-tanks and trade unions, offer an unrivalled early assessment of the impact of Gove, and his reforms, on the British educational landscape. With authors from a variety of professional backgrounds and political viewpoints, this book seeks both to situate Gove's legacy in historical perspective and offer insights as to likely future directions of travel in the educational world left behind. It is a volume which seeks to bridge the divide between policymakers and practitioners in appraising the impact of one of the most controversial education ministers of recent times.
