Summary
For nearly 200 years the organisational form of the school has changed little. Bureaucracy has been its enduring form. The school has prepared the worker for the factory of mass production. It has created the 'mass consumer' to be content with accepting what is on offer, not what is wanted. However, a 'revised' educational code appears to be emerging. This code centres upon the concept of 'personalisation', which operates at two levels: first, as a new mode of public service delivery; and second, as a new 'grammar' for the school, with new flexibilities of structure and pedagogical process
