89% of LA-maintained schools good or better. Why no government praise?

Local authority maintained schools are slightly more likely to be good or better than academies, newly-released data from the Department for Education (DfE) admits.  89% of LA-maintained schools were in the top two Ofsted grades*.

This compares favourably with inspection results of academies which are not sponsored**.  88% of non-sponsored academies are good or better.

Yet the DfE media department has focussed its praise and publicity on academies.
