Markets and Equity in Education by Geoffrey Walford pdf free download. One of the most important areas of research and debate in education over the last decade or more has been that of increased choice and marketization in schooling and the equity effects of these changes. In 1994 Cassell published my book Choice and Equity in Education which gave an overview of the situation up to that time. Since then I have conducted several pieces of research and written widely on issues related to choice, markets, diversity and equity in education. This book gathers together many of those papers, most of which have been published in refereed academic journals, with a few in edited books or conference papers.

While some are easier to find than others, I believe that there is merit in bringing them together within a single book where they will provide a useful point of reference. The chapters are presented more or less in their original form. I have made only slight editorial changes and I have made no attempt to update them to take into account more recent research or argument. It is thus important to note the original date of publication, so that the chapters can be set in their historic context.

That said, there is little in the argument of these chapters that I would wish to change were I to write them anew. The problems and debates around markets and education remain, with little resolution having been made during the time since the original writing. The chapters in the book are divided into five parts. Part 1, on ‘choice and diversity’, brings together four chapters from 1994 to 2001 that together discuss the central problems and debates about markets and equity.

Chapter 1 was originally written as part of an exchange with David Hargreaves about the ideas expressed in his article ‘Diversity and choice in school education: a modified libertarian view’ (Hargreaves 1996). It discusses the difficulties of using cost-benefit analysis in education, examines in detail some of the documents on which Hargreaves’ argument was based and traces the development of policy on school choice. It is argued that policy on choice must be understood within a consideration of the wider social and political context in which that policy has arisen. The chapter then documents the various new forms of selection that have accompanied increased choice and considers problems of social segregation.
