Education, Professionalism and the Quest for Accountability
My book, subtitled “Hitting the Target but Missing the Point”, was published by Routledge in New York in 2011.
It developed from my PhD thesis, Institute of Education, University of London.
Some extracts from reviews:
- “Jane Green's book is an important addition to the literature on professionalism. It aims and lands some well-directed (and much deserved) volleys on the target of the new public management. It is scrupulously written ... and sustains a progressive narrative throughout.” Ron Barnett, Journal of Philosophy of Education, Vol.48, No.3, 2014
- “Green is a fine and perceptive writer, whose lucid prose is inviting. ... The central themes she addresses touch the lives of all citizens.” Patrick Keeney, Prospero, Volume 17, number 3
- “There is much to enjoy that is of relevance beyond the world of education. Defending the priority of seasoned judgement against a world of auditing and targets may also prove to be an argument whose time has come and may find surprisingly fertile ground in the new politics of austerity.” Michael Power, British Journal of Sociology of Education, Vol.33, No.4, July 2012
