This study aimed to determine the ways in which local authorities have modernised their education decision-making processes and to explore the experiences of those directly involved in the changes. The key objectives were to explore some of the key features of the modernisation agenda, with a particular focus upon the role of scrutiny, and to track the process of key decisions with the intention of describing the impact of modernisation upon education decision-making.
