Abstract

This paper explores some hitherto neglected but nonetheless important aspects of the changing landscape of education policy and governance in England. It sketches some particular features of the increasingly complex and ‘congested’ terrain of the education state and traces some of the primary discourses that currently inform and drive education policy (and indeed social policy more generally) both in relation to governance and substance. The paper draws on an ESRC funded study (RES-062-23-1484) of ‘Philanthropy and Education Policy’. This research involved 3 sets of activities; extensive and exhaustive internet searches around particular (corporate) philanthropies, philanthropists and philanthropically funded programmes; interviews with some key ‘new’ philanthropists and foundations interested and involved in education; and the use of these searches and interviews to construct ‘policy networks’. Together these constitute a ‘method’ of ‘network ethnography’.
