Is there a way to fund education that is neither elitist, on the one hand, nor state-determined, on the other? Is there a case for education to be funded by companies and individuals routing both capital and revenue through generalised, tax-exempt educational endowments? Can education be released from the dictates of ever more restrictive economic circumstances – circumstances that arguably derive from the impoverishment of education in the first place? Can we meet the unfolding needs of our children rather than shackle them to the relentless demand of industry and commerce? Passing from big ideas to day-to-day operation, this book outlines a positive response to such questions.
