This article reports on aspects of the Parental and School Choice Interaction (PASCI) Study which is investigating the relationship between school decision-making and parental choice. It identifies and considers factors within the internal and external school environment which operate in a negative way to influence and inhibit schools' capacity to change their policy and practice in response to parental choice and competition. The article contends that these factors-termed 'barriers to responsiveness'- have a variable and differential impact upon schools and play a major part in determining the functioning and nature of the education quasi-market. In order to systematise thinking about these barriers to responsiveness, the article provides an analytical framework for their location, organisation and classification.
