Academies: a breakthrough or yet more spin?

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

In this article the General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers outlines the reasons why the Union opposes Academies, and gives an overview of the changes in the relationship between local authorities and Academies. The NUT recognises that the change of government presents an opportunity for a change of direction and welcomes reports that a study has been commissioned. An analysis of recent evidence on Academies, including that of the influential House of Commons Committee of Public Accounts, is followed by the NUT's views of the what the next steps should be on Academies and on supporting schools in challenging circumstances.
