Partnership for Schools and Building Schools for the Future: An Emerging Strategy?
Soulsby, Christopher David (2009) Partnership for Schools and Building Schools for the Future: An Emerging Strategy? [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
This dissertation investigates the strategy adopted by Partnership for Schools (PfS) to meet the Government‟s commitment to build schools fit for the 21st century. The Government‟s intention was that the programme: Building Schools for the Future (BSF) would be not just be about good buildings but also lead to improvements in educational performance. The rationale lying behind this „twin track‟ approach is examined. The state of the school estate at the end of the twentieth century, and the chronic lack of investment, is exposed. The commonly held belief that improving school buildings would lead to improvements in educational standards is also discussed.
