I thought we had it bad in Lincolnshire, but look what is happening here
in Kent. What the hell gives Gove the right to think that he can act as an admissions authority in the way a locally accountable LA can do?
I am getting sick to death of reminding heads and governors that while they should be thinking about the kids in schools now, they also have a responsibility to shape the education of generations to come. Too many are not looking beyond the end of the next financial year; and too few are looking at what our education system will shape up to in decade when it has been fragmented and privatised.
Rather than talking to parents of kids at school now, maybe I should change tactics and go and talk to parents at toddler groups, because they are ones who will take the brunt of this shameful madness .
