From the cover: “This book provides critical policy analyses of recent developments in Australian education with comparative references to those in the UK, USA and New Zealand. Specifically, the book focuses on the Labour Government restructuring at both the Federal and State levels, with particular reference to discourses on equity, policy, administrative structures and curriculum. More generally, the book provides a sophisticated analysis of the impact of New Right political pressures upon the restructurings.
This is one of the first texts to take an international stance on policy analysis and includes the work of many of the best known scholars in the area. .”
