Recent evidence shows that ‘academisation’ is not the “magic bullet” the Coalition Government has claimed. Many schools have received poorer Ofsted ratings after becoming academies while those receiving ‘outstanding’ gradings were already at that level.

The new Education Secretary has tried to distance herself from the toxic legacy of her predecessor. In what the  Daily Mail laughingly called a ‘U-turn’, she said she was continuing Michael Gove’s policies but not because of ideology; she is doing so  “because they work”, she said,  to which the simple riposte is,  “No they don’t!”
