Overview

By exploring a public policy process in action during the period 1944-1999, the book traces the impact of policy to the institutional level where policy becomes practice. The author investigates the development of the further education sector and reveals the process that helped shape its identity. Beginning at a watershed period for the development of the education system, the book provides an unique benchmark, combining theory with reality and evaluating current policy.

Author Biography: Sandy Cripps, Dr, Strategic and International Management Group, University of East London, UK.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Cripps (U. of East London) explores the link between public policy- making and its implementation in education, as evidenced by four further education colleges in the UK. The author traces the historical development of the further education sector from 1943 - 1999 through government documentation and legislation. Major issues raised include the association between increased regulation and risk at the institutional level; ways in which power over language themes can be used to bring about radical change; and the role of emotional intelligence in professionals' decision-making.
