October 2012 saw the introduction of controversial reforms to the way in which higher education (HE) is funded in England. The headline change is an increase in the cap on tuition fees to £9,000 per year and the removal of most direct funding for universities. This virtual issue of Fiscal Studies brings together some of the contributions that Fiscal Studies has made to the literature on HE finance over the last 20 years.

The UK government has introduced a number of reforms aimed at increasing school choice and accountability in recent years. In June 2011, Fiscal Studies published a special issue analysing the circumstances under which such reforms might be most effective, with a particular focus on the role of school league tables. With the new school league tables in England being published this month, we are once again offering free access to this issue. The positions taken by the authors and guest editors suggest that while the UK government has taken a number of steps in the right direction – such as the proposed introduction of further and higher education destinations as additional performance measures – there are still some ways in which they might be able to improve the system even further.
Read the Special Issue on Schools, Markets and League Tables free until the 30th April 2013.
