Book Lists All the LEA Duties


A marked increase in claims against local education authorities has prompted a team of experts to produce guidance of the authorities' duties. LEAs have never been under closer scrutiny, as greater accountability, ever more legislative changes and a growing culture of litigation have led to a marked increase in claims brought against them.

To guide and advise LEAs in England and Wales at this time of unprecedented challenge, the Education Management Information Exchange at the National Foundation for Educational Research has brought together a team of experts to produce a new overview of their duties and powers.

Since EMIE first sought to answer the question of 'what are LEAs for' four years ago with an analysis of the functions and roles of the local education authority, so much has changed that a major revision to this guide to education law has had to be written.

This comprehensively updated second edition of What is the LEA for? will be required reading for local authority officers and elected members with responsibility for the education service, and will provide an essential source of reference for head teachers, school governors, teachers of education management, and lawyers - indeed anyone with an interest in public sector education.
