"Parental choice in education has become a focus of political interest. This important book uses research findings to discuss what parents want, and whether they see themselves as consumers of education, in a lively, readable and thought provoking way. Anyone interested in the role of parents in schools would benefit from reading it." Barbera Tizard, Institute of Education, University of London "Parents have become increasingly important in education during the last few years, and this valuable book gives a full picture of their views and experiences in important aspects of curriculum and testing. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see what parents really think about their childrena s education." Professor E. C. Wragg, University of Exeter
