There is a very interesting story
in the LA Times regarding six Charter schools who were caught cheating in exams.
It is rather worrying that the article also lists other schools where employees have embezzled and stolen money. I wonder if this would have happened if the checks and balances were still undertaken by the local authority?
I would be interested to know how many other problem charter schools/academies there are because it does not seem to me that everything in the garden is quite so lovely as Mr Gove seems to think.
