Explores the complex institutional jungle of regulators involved in regulating state schools in England. In this sector, in contrast with the prisons sector, regulators were able to link their monitoring to sanctions as drastic as closing schools down. The study found no clear evidence of the benefits of the enhanced regulatory regime in terms of examination performance (the main performance indicator set by government for schools).

Keywords:   education, examinations, monitoring, performance indicator, regulation, sanctions, schools
