Education Secretary Michael Gove has announced plans to launch Swedish style ‘Free’ Schools.
He is preparing the legislation now.
The ‘Free’ schools proposal is new to Britain. It is modelled on the Swedish and American experiences with ‘Free’ and ‘Charter’ schools.
This proposal is being driven by the New Schools Network. This claims to have 450 groups of parents and teachers clamouring to set up their own schools.
This Anti Academies Alliance briefing looks at who runs the New Schools Network, and who will profit from running their schools.
