    The new right believe that education is controlled too much by the state and that this overbearing control has led to inefficiency, national economic decline and a lack of personal business initiative. A culture of state dependancy has developed and the cost of this has reduced investment in industry. They argue that the state's "one size fits all" education system doesn't work , both the needs of the individual and the community aren't met. The needs of employers for a highly skilled and motivated workforce also aren't met , they view state schools as insufficient. Schools that get poor results don't change as they aren't answerable to their consumers and the result is lower standards and a less qualified workforce.

    The new right solution to the problem is the creation of an education market , marketisation forces consumer choice and forces schools to respond to the needs of its pupils , parents and employers. Competition with schools means that teachers have to be more efficient at their job and a schools survival depends on its ability to raise pupil achievement.

    Chubb and Moe believe that the american education system has failed. They compared the achievement of 60,000 pupils from low income families in over 1,000 state and private schools. Their findings showed that working class pupils do 5% better in private schools which shows that the state system isn't meritocratic.

    The New Right believe that state education has failed to create equal opportunity because it doesn't have to respond to pupils needs , parents and communities aren't able to do anything about failing school as they are run by the state. They believe that private schools deliver a higher quality of education as they are answerable to paying customers.

    However , the New Right perspective has been criticised on the grounds that there was a contradiction in the New Right's support for parental choice and the state imposing a national curriculum which was introduced in 1988. Marxists argue that education imposes the culture of a ruling class not a national identity as the New Right argue. Other critics argue that the real cause of low educational achievement isn't state control but social inequality and the inadequate funding of state schools. Gerwitz argues that competition benefits the middle class who can get their children into more 'desirable schools'.

    Take four policies, describe what they are and then evaluate them also using the New Right view to evaluate

    It varies, but that seems to be the most common one. You can also get specific ones on class and gender but this only needs small adjustments
