Nicky Morgan is Wrong

» by in: Article

The education secretary Nicky Morgan has today launched a bill designed to sweep away any obstacles when as many as 1,000 “struggling” schools convert to academies.

Article in the Guardian that questions the Government’s fixation on Academies as the universal solution to edition, and how a conservative select committee question the Minister’s fixation on removing democratic local control, essentially turning schooling over to commercial interests and thus imposing Tory ideology as a guiding principle in the formation of ideas. Is this genuinely in the interests of families?

In a comment, Michael Rosen remarked:

Do we really have a government in power (I don’t care if it’s Labour, LibDem or Tory) that has passed legislation which enables our collective property to be ‘transferred’ out of our ownership and control to any of the variety of bodies now running academies – chains, universities, charities etc?

Perhaps I missed it, was this particular matter debated in the House? Did we the people really agree to this?
