Superb resource for history of English education
17 Jan 2011
Derek Gillard's 'history of education in England' website has been updated. This impressive resource - invaluable to anyone studying the history of education policy - is now right up to date, including the start of the coalition government.
The history has also been extensively rewritten: the previous version was 40,000 words; the new one is almost three times as long at 117,000. There are now twelve chapters, including one on the Brown and Balls period (2007-2010) and a final one reviewing the policies of the 'coalition' government.
One feature of the new version which Derek hopes will be of use to students and researchers is that it contains more than 120 downloadable copies of education acts and white papers.
