    I have to be honest here. I am very worried that 44% of secondary schools have become academies. We have lost the battle in some areas where all the secondary schools are academies. However, we still have a lot to fight for and a lot is at stake. If more than half the secondary schools go I think we can be certain that Gove will target all the primaries with a lot more vigor. In fact, we are starting to see this with Downhills and the forced Primary Schools in Haringey. That is why we must win the battle over the forced academies in that borough.

    We need hundreds of people on the streets on 28th January because we can force the Tory ideologue to retreat if we reverse his agenda here. We then need to go on the offensive and publicise the 8 failed academies around the country to highlight that academies do not, as if by magic, succeed when they replace LA schools.
