Covering the key questions of how to develop diversity in education, this is a book for policy makers, teachers, governors, and parents to use to bring about positive change. Leading educationists from Britain and the United States give the case for diversity of school provision. Three case studies from Christian, Muslim, and Waldorf schools offer guidance on the problems of "opting in" to the state system. The rights of parents, children, and teachers to greater choice within a more equitable state system are thoroughly explored.

The book arose from the Oxford University 1995 conference on educational choice and freedom in Europe.
