Public opinion split on Free School according to YouGov poll

http://today.yougov.co.uk/life/free-school-debate

As a new school term gets well underway for parents and children across the country, the debate surrounding ‘free schools’ has split public opinion, our poll has shown, with similar numbers in support as in opposition. The poll also shows that 3 in 5 people would be uninterested in getting involved in the project should a free school be set up in their area, while the country is also split over whether the Government has too much power over the way that schools are run.
