153 schools apply for academy status

Despite Government claims that thousands of schools wanted to become academies it appears that rushing through emergency legislation has only persuaded 153 schools to become academies. 

I find this really heartening.  It demonstrates that even if the Minister of Education wants to bring in an ideologically based policy our schools and colleges are still sticking with a system that they know can work, because they are acting in the best interests of their students.

Over to you, Michael.
