Abstract

This chapter discusses children as decision makers in the context of developments in English primary education. It cannot do justice to developments elsewhere, whether in other parts of the United Kingdom or overseas. It uses three organizing ideas - 'ages', 'myths' and 'autonomy' - as a way of outlining the changing context in which English primary schools have operated, primary teachers have taught and primary pupils have experienced their schooling over the forty years since the publication of the Plowden Report (Central Advisory Council for Education 1967).
