Why the Tories think turning all schools into Academies is a good idea

In case your missed this post on Twitter, actor David Schneider posted a cracking list of reasons why the Tories think turning all schools into Academies is a good idea. It goes a little bit like this:

Why turning all schools into Academies is a good idea:

  • Takes schools out of the hands of experts and hands them to people who can make money out of them
  • Offers a complete top-down reorganisation that wasn’t promised in the manifesto because that worked so well for the NHS
  • Frees parents from the burden of having a say in the running of their local school
  • Empowers teachers and headteachers by telling them exactly what’s right for them
  • Guarantees higher standards by not taking children with additional learning or other needs
  • Removes control from evil, democratically elected councils in favour of nice, unaccountable central bureaucracies
  • Helps fulfill potential, such as academy CEOs potential to earn 200K+ or make money from employing their own companies

I’m just going to leave this here…
