Academies – the low down

The review of the academy program, Academies: autonomy, accountability, quality and evidence published by the Cambridge Primary Review Trust and authored by Warwick Mansell sums ups in a concise and readable way the failings and (un)intended consequence of what aims to be the biggest change in schooling provision in England since the Second World War. 

The evidence is damning and whilst a government can attempt to push this through, it’s long term effect is such that it is now incumbent on decision makers at local level to resist in every way they can. 

The full report and a very readable summary is available on the CPRT website
