"...there is much to enjoy in this extended essay that is of relevance beyond the world of education. Defending the priority of seasoned judgement against a world of auditing and targets may also prove to be an argument whose time has come and may find surprisingly fertile ground in the new politics of austerity sweeping through Western Europe." - Michael Power, Department of Accounting, London School of Economics and Political Science, British Journal of Sociology of Education, Vol. 33, No. 4, July 2012, 621 - 628.
"Jane Green’s book is an important addition to the literature on professionalism. It aims and lands some well-directed (and much deserved) volleys on the target of the new public management. It is scrupulously written, attendant to the contemporary literature, and sustains a progressive narrative throughout. It is to be hoped that Jane Green will build on this text and renew her explorations here, and attempt to fill out and develop a conception of professionalism for the current age". - Ron Barnett, Department of Lifelong and Comparative Education, University of London, Journal of Philosophy of Education, Vol. 48, No. 3, 2014.
