ULT – too much power

What is the most powerful organisation in secondary education?
A good case can be made out for the United Church Schools Trust. The biggest academy sponsor (through its subsidiary, the United Learning Trust), with thirteen already set up and several more on the way, the UCST also owns eleven private fee-charging schools and employs 1700 people.
It controls hundreds of millions of pounds worth of public assets and property (it will not say exactly how much), and gets more every year. It has spent hundreds of millions of pounds of public money building its academies, and the taxpayer will pay it hundreds of millions more every year to use them.
