This chapter starts by briefly summarising the history of education in England, with a particular emphasis on schools as institutions and school buildings. Drawing on the work of Olson it is argued that schools are ‘knowledge institutions’. The chapter then critiques the idea of personalisation in education, before introducing Young’s three scenarios for future education. Sen’s capability theory is also introduced in order to emphasise the importance of education
