MEDIA REVIEWS

"This excellent collection tells us a great deal about government policy-making generally, as well as the specific educational legacy of Michael Gove and the Coalition Government. As someone who was directly involved in one set of reforms, I was intrigued by how much I had forgotten, or never known, about the detail of policy-making and implementation. But I was also deeply impressed by the way in which the authors, from very different perspectives, leave one with a much clearer understanding of how education policy has evolved in England; of major underlying shifts, many of which started well before 2010; and of how much, or little, future governments are likely to change direction. Highly recommended!" - Professor Alison Wolf CBE, Sir Roy Griffiths Professor of Public Management, King's College London, author of Does Education Matter?

"This timely collection offers an unrivalled range of perspectives on one of the most important Education ministers of the modern era." - Sir Anthony Seldon, Master of Wellington College and Fellow of King's College London, author of Schools United

"[This book] does, however, help you to see Gove as others understood him and that's a good thing. Mike Finn has selected his authors well and edited to perfection. Each chapter opens with a clear abstract and list of keywords, meaning you know what the text will bring and you can decide if you have the stomach for it." - Laura McInerney, Schools Week
