Education policy has increasingly become a local matter. Localities and schools adjust education to meet specific local needs. Globalization and the greater emphasis on knowledge in society, however, also embody strong streamlining tendencies. This book examines and compares local education systems in Britain and the way in which Sweden creates the interplay between common tendencies of change and particular local conditions.
