Embedding Democratic Engagement in School Leadership: comprehensive schooling structures in an academised system

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

This article describes how a gaping democratic deficit has emerged in the English schools system as both local authorities and school governing bodies have been degraded by academisation. In arguing that a comprehensive school can only be truly comprehensive if it is based on democratic principles, the authors make the case for re-establishing democracy in state education by developing democratic governance structures at school level, and nesting these in a system of Local Education Boards.
