Abstract

This article examines the implementation of new school funding governance structures and their interaction with social risks, especially reductionism. It extends ongoing discussion in Public Money and Management on risk governance during public service change. It finds case study evidence of reductionism and recommends its management and mitigation through contextually customised policy implementation, holistic in approach and incorporating stakeholders’ input. In so doing, school education services can function as Complex Adaptive Systems proactively responding to social risks.
