The focus here is on the outcomes of school admissions processes within the quasi-market. It considers how parents and pupils have experienced, and how schools and local authorities have reacted to, the realities of choice in admissions, the impact on social inequality, and the responses found in the relevant legal and administrative processes when parental preference has come into conflict with school admissions practice. Accountability in the exercise of decision-making power remains a central theme.

Keywords:   school admissions, quasi-market, choice, social inequality, accountability, legal responses
