Say no to national control of all schools

School Traffic Sign1The Liberal Democrats are campaigning against Government plans to make all schools into academies, under national control.

The Government plans to:

  • force all "coasting" schools to become academies, irrespective of each school's wishes
  • remove elected parent governors
  • leave local councils with responsibility for issues such as school places - without the full powers needed to discharge them
  • expand the use of unqualified teachers.

Although the government says it will no longer force every school to become a academy by 2022, it is still committed to forcing every school in specific categories to convert and hopes they ALL will.

We the undersigned oppose Government plans to make all schools to become academies, under national control.
