As teachers plan to join up to 3 million trade unionists taking action over cuts in November this year, this new book from Melissa Benn is a timely addition to the sharp debate taking place over the future of education in Britain. From the poorest comprehensives to the most well-resourced independent schools, School Wars takes a forensic look at the inequalities of our current system, the damaging impact of spending cuts, the rise of “free schools” and the growth of the private sector in education. Melissa Benn explores, too, the dangerous example of US education reform, where privatisation and the rise of charter schools have intensified social, economic and ethnic divisions.
