Every parent matters: reflections from England upon New Labour's parent policy

Simon, C.A and Gibson, H (2010) 'Every parent matters: reflections from England upon New Labour's parent policy.' Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, 114. pp. 93-117. ISSN 1207-7798

Abstract

In England, until May 2010, the New Labour party had been in power for thirteen years. This paper is a reflection back upon its period in office and its strident policies on parents and families. It questions its stance on parental voice and choice, looks at issues of trust and contract, and considers the idea of parent empowerment in the context of a preference for the middle class that underpinned much of its policy.
