So Toby Young
is to get his way.
Two things I noticed about this story
. First was one of the comments Toby made. 'My wife often jokes that if I spent the same amount of time on my career as I spend on the school we could afford to send all our children to Eton' - clearly exposing Toby's real aim, to get private education for his kids using our money.
The second thing was to note that Toby is still saying that the amount of money to be spent on adapting the temporary accommodation, acquiring a permanent site and converting that still 'cannot be disclosed'. Why Toby? Why are we not to be allowed to know how much we are paying so that your children can learn Latin.
It's about time the DfE started being as transparent as local authorities are expected to be and give us the information about the costs of these schools.
