Abstract

Two related concerns — equality of educational opportunity and the link between education and the labour demands of a modern capitalist economy — lay at the root of many of the major changes brought about in public education by Western governments during the post-war period. These changes have led to a rapid expansion of both the provision and the utilisation of public education, with a concomitant growth in educational expenditure.1
