The book’s context, parameters, structure and analytical framework, are established. Brief introductions are offered to the three paradigms for allocating school places to be considered later: state planning, choice in the quasi-market, and random allocation. The values which might underlie admissions policies and practices are also considered. The constitutional and legal perspective, and an emphasis on an expectation of accountability, which will inform the rest of the book are established, and the key lines of argument set out.

Keywords:   school admissions, accountability, planning, parental choice, quasi-markets, random allocation, constitution, democracy, law
