Still not quite got the point of these academies and free schools has our Ms. Millar:
The model funding agreement left by Labour attempted to bind academies into the local authority family. If that is torn up by Gove, chaos could ensue…
The calculation is that chaos is better than having schools bound into the local authority family. They may be right or wrong about this (I think they\’re right for whatever that\’s worth) but this is indeed the point of the whole exercise.
To get LAs, LEAs and the entire educational bureaucracy entirely detatched from the actual education system where they do so much harm.
