Demand-Sensitive Schooling?

Evidence and Issues

Many educational experts are identifying  a critical shift from supply-led systems — operating to procedures decided by educational authorities, schools and teachers — towards systems which are much more sensitive to demand.  But, whose demands should these be? What are they? And how will schools recognize and cope with them?  This book examines different aspects of the demand concept and presents international evidence from Austria, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Denmark, England, Finland, Hungary, Japan, Poland, Spain, and the United States to reveal attitudes and expectations.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter shows how choice is an increasingly important mechanism for parental demand. Countries are moving towards greater parental freedom to making choices with better information available to make their decisions. There are also significant moves to widen the diversity of programmes and schools among which choices can be made, including through private provision and, in some countries, home schooling.
