Leadership and the Reform of Education

This concluding chapter revisits the national standards agenda set up in Chapter 1 as the rationale for the leadership of schools game. The impact of this is considered through examining the situation post-2010 when New Labour left office and a Conservative-led coalition presented its education policies. The continuities in the leadership of schools game, particularly how the National College survived the cull of quangos, are examined. The book concludes by focusing on the politics of knowledge production: how the leadership of schools is about reducing the spaces for democratic dialogue, and what the possibilities are for research and field renewal.

Keywords:   New Labour, Conservative-led coalition, school leadership, leadership of schools, regimes of practice, regime practices
