What are free schools, and what are they free from?
David Bray pages 58-62
DOI: 10.3898/FORUM.2022.64.3.07


This article is based on a PhD research project at the University of Birmingham. It examines the intersection between official descriptions of the post-2010 free school programme and the actual experiences of individuals who opened such schools. The tensions between them are located within the control exerted by central government over school characteristics, even within an environment described as ‘free’.
