Academies system has given politicians too much power, says ex-DfE boss

Academisation of the school system has handed too much power to a “very small number” of politicians, the Department for Education’s former top boss has warned.

Former DfE permanent secretary Jonathan Slater said the academies system was “more centralised than it should be”. He also questioned “whether it makes sense” to give individual ministers “quite so much power over what children learn in school”.
