This is an up-to-date guide for teachers and parents, administrators, governors, students and others to help the find their way about the increasingly complex world of education. The main section provides a dictionary that is more than a simple set of definitions: many words in education have been put into some kind of historical context to become fully meaningful. The second part gives some important landmarks from the nineteenth century to the present time, and also provides a list of political heads of education since state education was established. The final section is devoted to a list of acronyms and abbreviations, both of which have been the subject of multiple definitions in recent years.

the dictionary - an alphabetical list of definitions in education and training
historical background - landmarks in the development of British education since 1800
