Hi. I wrote a blog today looking at an claims re future autonomy/accountability of schools within academy chains. It's here if you're interested:

Also see twitter for argument/debate between me (@warwickmansell) and @samfr about this issue.

Thanks,

Warwick

This shows the danger of academy chains: less freedom for schools, puppet governing bodies, decisions about teaching practice taken from trained professionals and put in the hands of unaccountable and remote centralised offices.

This is a fascinating piece Warwick and one which deserves a wider airing . I hadn't heard anything about Burns' evidence to the Select Committee. The transfer of schools from one academy chain to another without the schools' agreement is chilling -at least Fernando Torres wanted to move to Chelsea.
Keep up the good work.
