Marketisation and conglomeration are undermining state education

Stuart Boothman's picture
From Grant Maintained, CTCs, Academies, Free Schools... Every change to governance arrangements have pressured schools into chasing money rather than providing education for children. The new coalition government are pushing this acceleration to new and scary levels. Small schools are vulnerable to take over or closure for economic reasons, leaving the academic benefits of a more personalised approach to history.

New pressures on primary schools to federate to cut costs sounds sensible, but how much pressure to respond to market forces are hidden within?
