In chapters 2 and 3 I considered the impact of the New Right on curriculum policy debate and in chapters 4 and 5 the impact of the industrial trainers. Here, and in the following chapter, I explore the role of the state bureaucrats, the DES and the HMI, and the Secretary of State, and their relationships with the educational establishment.
