Abstract

This paper takes as its starting point the special provision made for grant maintained schools through the 1998 School Standards and Framework Act and suggests that the compromise it represented may be considered as an example of New Labour's 'Third Way' in politics. The latter is discussed in terms of general and educational policies with specific regard to the characteristics of self-governing schools.
