Summary
Are educational partnerships being eroded by competition? Does a simulated market for schooling through parental choice of school, coupled with devolved financial control fundamentally alter a school's relationships with other institutions, with parents and with society? Collaborate or Compete? examines such partnerships and finds that although competition is increasing, this sometimes strengthens cooperation between elements of the system and can lead to new and creative alliances. Relationships in education are also challenged by societal shifts and by rapid developments in communications technology. The book's contributors assess these events from the perspectives of the school inspectorate, headteachers, parents, teacher educators, researchers and a diversity of others currently active in the school world, and they analyse the ways in which interactions between individuals and institutions are evolving with events
