Whatever they may claim, the New Schools Network is effectively an extension of the Tory Party.
Their latest idea for breaking up our education system …..
Parents and community groups should be allowed to take over failing schools, according to a new report from the New Schools Network that has heavily criticised the government’s approach to free schools.
The NGA document, “Moving MATs forward: the power of governance”, says: “In isolated cases, NGA is aware of trusts that have allowed their chief executive to present the board with proposals for their own pay for the trustees to then decide if this is fair or not, rather than undertaking a due process.”
We think – The whole model is wrong and popping a few parents onto governing bodies isn’t going to change that. Remote/undemocratic/exorbitant executive salaries/re-brokering. There’s nothing to like here. We need a Nat. Ed. Service fit for purpose. Not this mess.
