Politics, politicians and English comprehensive schools
Politicians, at the national and local levels, were at the heart of the process to go comprehensive, especially in the 1960s and 1970s, and in the policy retreat from the 1980s onwards.
This paper examines the plurality of political intentions and interventions relating to the English post-war comprehensive school and considers whether the project foundered because it was too political, or, alternatively, because it was not political enough.
