Ministers miss chance to end power of academy oligarchs

Ministers have “missed an opportunity” to end the stranglehold of academy “oligarchs” by ignoring warnings in a government-commissioned study.

A £220,000 “investigative” report commissioned by the Department for Education, published this week, found academy governance was at risk of being “too insular”.

A lack of separation in roles was “common practice” with more than half of academy trust chairs also holding positions as members of the trust.
