I wonder if anyone else has come across this survey of parents by the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Association
It has some very interesting findings. For example, discipline is not a concern for at least 84% of parents which runs entirely contrary to the coalition/national press view that its the single biggest concern for parents in state schools. Whilst most parents are in favour of academies, the survey shows most don't want them to be selective which again contradicts the picture of a huge pent up demand for selection painted by many right wing commentators.
On free schools the survey suggests a swing away from support, with 33% thinking they are a good idea - down from 45% a year ago and and a even bigger drop in willingness to help with setting one up - down from 45% a year ago to 11% now.
