Chapter Two details the unravelling of the ‘Trojan Horse’ affair andthe ways in which it revealed that the government’s peremptory andPanglossian ideal of an ‘excellent education system’, as articulated via the academies project, has, to a great extent, overlooked the vital area of Education governance. It describes how the affair has not only revealed a troubling set of issues related to governance, but by manifesting as a ‘media storm’, ‘an Islamist plot’ and the apotheosis of an ‘ideological drive’ by a senior government minister, has also become a watershed for future policy and practices in this area.
