Networks, New Governance and Education
Distributed for Policy Press at the University of Bristol
Education in the public sector is undergoing a period of radical change, one that is shifting to embrace the role of private organizations in government services. In this groundbreaking book, Stephen J. Ball and Carolina Junemann critically engage the burgeoning literature on new governance, offering a “network ethnography” that presents the voices of the key actors working within this new model. By drawing the lines of this network, the authors highlight the increasing influence that financial capital and education businesses have on public policy and service delivery.
