About This Item
Education in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland is also covered, though in less detail. In addition to the twenty chapters, there is a timeline listing events, reports, education acts, official papers and other publications; a glossary of commonly-used abbreviations and terms which may be especially useful for non-UK readers; and a bibliography, which is a compilation of all the quoted sources listed at the end of each chapter. Each web page includes links to all the chapters as in the left-hand column on this page and, at the end of each page, there are links to the previous and next chapters.
The left-hand column also displays the organisation of each chapter with links to the main headings, as shown in the Contents list below. In quotations, interventions shown in round brackets are the author's own; interventions in [square brackets] are mine. Italics are the author's own unless otherwise indicated. Bearing in mind that Education in England has an international audience - roughly half of all visitors are from non-English-speaking countries - I have tried to write in a clear style and to avoid the use of colloquial expressions.
Glossary Alphabetical lists of commonly used abbreviations and terms. Bibliography A compilation of all the sources quoted. In education, lip-service has often been paid to history's importance, but it has endured a somewhat chequered career and, as a National Curriculum subject, has suffered interference from a variety of groups with political motives.
The history of education itself has fared little better. Since the s, the training of student teachers has focused on 'delivering' the National Curriculum. The idea that they might benefit from understanding how the provision of education developed in the UK seems to have been lost under a morass of tests and targets.

This is surely not good enough. The education of our teachers should be about much more than assimilating a list of facts to be taught or acquiring some skills in classroom management, useful though these may be.
The Renaissance: The 'Rebirth' of Science & Culture
Young teachers should be encouraged to take an active part in discussions about the nature and purpose of education, something they can only do if they have some knowledge of its history and the politics which have shaped it. And this applies not only to young teachers: all of us who are concerned for our children's future need to understand how we got to where we are now, so that we can engage in an informed debate about where we go from here. As Peter Mortimore has argued, 'those involved with education must continue to make the arguments for sounder ways to improve the system in the hope that, eventually, someone will listen' The Guardian 7 July Education in England: a history is my contribution to that process.
It began life in , when I was invited by Hugh Turner, a fellow middle-school head, to give a lecture to a group of American teachers attending a summer school here in Oxford. I produced a four-page summary of the lecture, called it Education in England: a brief history , and put it on the website I had just created. Since then, it has been revised and updated several times.
The version contained , words with references to sources. And now, after three-and-a-half years' work, here is the latest edition. Since November , Education in England: a history has been completely rewritten and updated. At just under half a million words, and with references to sources and links to newly-added documents, it is four times as long as the version.
In writing this history, I have received invaluable help from a number of individuals.
