In this book Brian Simon, Britain’s foremost historian of education, turns his attention to the role of the state in education. 

Part One ‘Why should we teach the history of education?’ sets out to make a renewed case for the study of the history of education by all those involved in the educational process - especially policy-makers.

Part Two is a series of historical essays, several of which deal with the Victorian restructuring of education from the 1850s to the 1870s.

Part Three looks at twentieth century developments, including a chapter on comprehensive education. 

 

‘This collection brings together in a very convenient volume many of his key speeches, addresses and articles, a very rich collection.’
