  • Criticisms of Marketisation Policies
    • Emphasis on students' performance rather than needs
    • Shift of school resources to marketing
    • Educational triage = the end of equality of opportunity within schools
    • Introduction of other schools alongside comprehensives created a segmented system
    • League tables are misleading - ignore variations in class and ability
    • League tables create 'vicious' circles
    • System is exploited by the middle-class, e.g. they can move to the area of better schools
    • Tests at 5, 7, 11 and 14 are damaging to children (stress)
    • Hidden agenda
