Academisation

Nicky Morgan’s tactic of ensuring that all schools become potential for profit enterprises continues with the transparent “coasting schools” rhetoric. In my part of the world academisation has taken a firm foothold and yet there is not a great deal of evidence that the process has ensured an improved provision for students.

Ediucation has been made more complicated by a desperate rush by some principals to make their name as converters and agents of structural change. In the end the focus on students’ education and the best approaches to teaching and learning have played an unfortunate second fiddle to personal aggrandisement.
