In recent years many countries have experimented with extending the role of market forces in their state schooling systems. These changes have often produced fierce debates about their rationale and consequences, not least because of their origins in a specific political and economic philosophy. The basis of this philosophy is economic liberalism: a belief in the efficiency of the market as a rationing and allocative mechanism. This book examines the appropriateness of this belief for schooling markets.
