Local Education Authorities: accountability and control

Stephen Ball, Lesley Henshaw

Recent legislation has greatly curtailed the roles and influence of LEAs.

Hilary Radnor of Exeter University, Stephen J Ball and Lesley Henshaw of King's College London and Carol Vincent of Warwick University have explored the emergence of new forms of school/LEA relationships and of new organisational cultures and practices within LEAs through four case studies.
