Show Summary Details


The relationship between the state, public policy and knowledge is examined in this chapter, by examining how hierarchy, markets and networks operate. The argument is made that particular public institutions dominated the leadership of schools game, and so the connections and inter-relationships with networks are through institutionalized governance. A case study of the National College is presented in order to show the control by the state of this non-departmental public body, and how individuals and networks of researchers, consultants and educational professionals were brought into policy delivery.

Keywords: institutionalised governance; hierarchy; markets; civil society; networks; governance; school leadership
