Chapter one begins with a brief outline of the role that school governors play in educational governance in England, describing the challenges they face and outlining these in the lead up to the ‘Trojan Horse’ Affair in 2014. In so doing it illustrates the ways in which unprecedented levels of reform that led up to the affair, and the catalytic effect it has had on policy since then. It also highlights the myriad ways in which the politicisation of education has encroached upon the whole area of compulsory education in England and how this, in turn, has impacted on democratic governance and accountability.
