OK so I am not an education expert, nor do. Work in education. But this book helped me make sense of what has happened to the education system.

Academies (and, more lately, free schools) have come in for a lot of attention lately, most of it, sadly, rather negative.

Lord Adonis writes a truly excellent book that tells the fascinating story of the British education scene over the last twenty years.

Fully recommended.
