""Law and Education: Regulation, Consumerism and the Education System"" analyzes the important and often controversial legal and related policy developments of recent years, which are transforming the education system of England and Wales. The author explores the central themes of regulation and consumerism through the discussion of key areas such as individual choice of school, the government and autonomy of educational institutions and control of the schools system. Current issues in family law are also addressed, in particular the public-private divide and child autonomy.;""Law and Education"" covers the numerous changes made to the law by the Education (Schools) Act 1992, the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 and the Education Act 1993, changes which include the creation of new Special Educational Needs Tribunals and a new legal regime for special educational needs, the establishment of a new School Curriculum and Assessment Authority and the introduction of a new quality assurance regime in further and higher education. The author concludes by considering whether the limits of consumerism in education have been reached.
