I have registered today following the Today programme revelation
that while funding promised by the previous government to improve conditions in the fabric of specific schools was cancelled on the grounds that the money could not longer be afforded, millions of pounds are being sent on purchasing or refurbishing "free schools". I totally agree with Francis Gilbert that this is an unfair use of public funds, benefitting a small minority rather than the large numbers of children and students in school buildings which are not up to standard.
I do not think the British public have woken up to the implications of the free schools policy and I hope the Local Schools Network will lead a vigorous campaign to oppose it. I think you need to have a punchy name for the campaign under the umbrella of the Local Schools Network as LSN in itself doesn't convey much and is not memorable. I couldn't remember what you were called and had to go to the Today website to find it.
