This book argues strongly for a radical reform of Britain's schools so as to give more power to parents and eventually to achieve an independent education for all children. Talternatives to the present state school system so as to increase accountability to parents, while he criticises the present educational establishment for not monitoring its own work - and, in particular, for failing critically to assess the results of the major changeover from a selective to a comprehensive system of schools. The book attempts to clarify many of the crucial concepts - competition, co-operation, democracy, equality, excellence and elites - used in the education debate. It outlines the case for, and the major objections to, the funding of all schools by vouchers given directly to parents. The author describes and analyzes two topics that he sees as crucial with regard to possible indoctrination in schools: the debate about race, culture, racism and "anti-racism"; and the debate about peace, defence, peace studies and the peace movement.
