This chapter sets out to summarise the key messages and trends in the research reported in the essays in this book. We take forward the idea of corporatised governance, where we examine what the data and analysis has to say about the privatisation of public service education, and the particular contribution of corporate elites. Specifically we identify the movement of educational issues from the public to private domains; the relocation of public education issues from government institutions to particular private organisations and individuals; and the redesign of the meaning and conduct of professional practices, and teaching and learning. We examine what public education means, and how research has a role in making the case.

Keywords:   corporatised governance, public education, research, corporate elites
