MATs are ‘like big corporations’, says leading Tory

Large multi-academy trusts (MATs) have become too corporate, the MP running for re-election as chair of the Commons Education Select Committee has suggested.

Robert Halfon also defended the record of free schools in an interview for Radio 4’s Week in Westminster programme on Saturday.

“I sometimes think multi-academy trusts have become too big – they have become like big corporations – but free schools are good, and we should be encouraging them,” the Conservative MP for Harlow said.
