Labour conference votes to end academies

Delegates at the annual Labour Party conference in Brighton have today passed a motion that would bring about the end of academies and multi-academy trusts if Labour came to power.

The motion proposes to bring all publically funded schools under the control of their local authority where they would be overseen by “a local education committee”.


The motion cites “a series of failings, scandals and collapses” relating to academy schools and MATs, and says they could be “a charter for profiteering”.
