Smyth, John (2011) The disaster of the ‘self-managing school’—its genesis, trajectory, undisclosed agenda, and effects. Journal of Educational Administration and History, 43 (2). pp. 95-117. ISSN 0022-0620Metadata only available from this repository.
Sometimes an educational idea is inexplicably adopted around the world with remarkable speed and consistency and in the absence of a proper evidence base or with little regard or respect for teachers, students or learning. This paper examines what has arguably been the most contentious and virulent educational reform of the past half‐century. Variously labelled, in what amounts to the self‐managing school, what this reform has done is virtually dismantle public education and privatise it without public debate or proper scrutiny. This paper considers the alleged claims by the enthusiastic proponents and examines what has subsequently transpired, particularly in respect of the most disadvantaged students and the broader mission of improved learning.
