Drawing on recent research evidence and theories from sociology, political science, gender studies and organizational analysis, this book examines whether educational reforms are attributable to "new right" ideologies or to broader notions of "new managerialism". It goes on to look critically at concepts of active citizenship, what constitutes lay administration of schools and the knowledge resources drawn upon by school governors. Attention is paid to issues of class, gender and ethnicity and the voices of both governors and teachers are heard throughout.

"An excellent study and a valuable read to all governors and educational managers." - Management in Education "...a thought-provoking insight into government moves to expandthe governance of schools into the wider public arena." - Local Government Studies "...a fast moving, cogently argued, textwith a sound theoretical base well supported with evidence."- Critical Social Policy
