Consumers not Bureaucrats

This paper makes a series of recommendations as to how consumer choice can be introduced into the [education] system. It is predicated on two assertions: first, that empowering the parent (and, thus, the pupil too) is a good thing in itself, leading to higher standards, responsiveness and satisfaction (I dealt with these issues in an earlier ASI report, A Class Act); and secondly, that the independent sector is demonstrably more efficient in its delivery of education.
