A National Education Service - identifying and overcoming barriers

A short article on the barriers to establishing a National Education Service

This second paper follows the paper “A National Education Service?” published on the ECARDA website in October 2017. It starts by identifying possible inhibitors to a National Education Service, taking the view that past legislation has brought improved educational opportunities for some but never all learners. The paper continues with some observations on how changed governance arrangements for multi-academy trusts could bring local schools to account directly to the local communities they serve. By design and necessity, this paper is unfinished. The reader is invited to continue the projection into the future.
