Summary
The last quarter of the 20th century was a very important period in history of education. Beginning with the so-called "Great Debate", the period witnessed intense public and political interest in educational issues, culminating in an almost unprecedented amount of education-related legislation, the most symbolic of which was the Education Reform Act of 1988. Some scholars have rightly claimed that the education system was "transformed" during this period, pointing to major changes in the ways in which schools, further education colleges and universities were organized, managed and controlled. Others have claimed that these changes altered the power relationships which had under-pinned the education system since 1944
