Review Quotes
School Leadership & Management

“This volume is strong both on the historical background of policy and on proposals for future policy imperatives . . . These ‘explorations in developed governance’ will provide an excellent seminar course for both researchers and all practitioners concerned with formulating and operating policy and the questions which are raised and the hypotheses suggested should encourage numerous further investigations . . . the editors are to be congratulated on the high quality of their contributors and the production values are those we would expect from a major academic publisher . . .” –School Leadership & Management

History of Education

“. . . a worthwhile addition to most educational libraries and a useful port-of-call for anyone seeking a ready overview of how education in Wales evolved to its present state.” –History of Education
