Academies And The Future Of State Education

Privately sponsored, state-funded academies should be expanded to take over failing primary schools according to this new book of essays by independent think-tank, CentreForum, which is backed by the three big political parties. The book argues that the failure of primary schools to teach large numbers of pupils to read and write is masked by a political focus on secondary schools. The book includes chapters from leading academy heads, sponsors, the minister for academies, Lord Adonis, and Conor Ryan, a former education adviser to the Blair government.
