English School System Fragmented, Costly and Confusing

A major investigation into the comparative costs of the two parallel schools systems in England, and those of other countries, has found that academies and multi-academy trusts on the one hand, and local authority managed schools on the other, have hugely disparate costs with the former far exceeding the latter.

It also found that while small trusts didn’t deliver value for money in comparison with local authority managed schools, economies of scale for larger MATs also failed to materialise and the costs per pupil for administration often actually get worse.
