This article presents an initial analysis of the impacts of 'democratic devolution' in Wales on education policy. It is undoubtedly the case that democratic devolution has created the circumstances in which education policies in Wales have become increasingly distinct from those in England; and in some instances, real innovations have been brought about (at least in the UK context). It is extremely unlikely that things would have developed in this way if the old Welsh Office regime had continued. However, there are important continuities between the pre- and post-Assembly phases of devolution, too. Moreover, it is essential to recognize the limitations of the changes that have occurred in the processes through which education policies are developed; to a considerable extent, those groupings in civil society which have always exerted a powerful influence over the policy process in education continue to do so. What this suggests, in turn, is that the impacts of Wales's new policy system may turn out to be more restricted than needs to be the case.
