Decentralisation and localism have become increasingly common drivers and outcomes of policy changes in many education systems in recent years, often sup- ported by an emphasis on collaboration. This paper uses research into three col- laborative initiatives in England and Wales to explore these changes. Informed by insights from network theory, it reveals a number of issues and tensions relating to decentralisation and localism and ends with a call to move away from a deficit perspective in order to use the multiplexity of current systems as a starting point for future developments in policy and research.
