Abstract     
Government and researchers use school performance measures such as contextual value-added to claim that giving schools autonomy from local authority control produces superior pupil performance in GCSE exami- nations. This paper explores the extent to which inferring causality between autonomy and pupil achievement is reasonable given that pupils are not ran- domly assigned to schools and schools do not randomly acquire autonomous status. Rich administrative data and the Longitudinal Survey of Young Peo- ple in England are used to evaluate whether CVA-style inferences are con- founded by pupil characteristics that explain both the chances of attending an autonomous school and academic achievement. The assignment of grant- maintained (and thus now foundation) status through a vote of parents is used to compare school that just did, and just did not, gain autonomy over a decade ago. These alternative estimation strategies suggest there is little evidence that foundation status casually yields superior school performance.
