Campaign for Learning policy briefings: Political Battleground-Failing Schools and Academies

Political Battleground: Failing Schools and Academies, 11am – 1pm, 4 July 2008

The government has announced new proposals for failing secondary schools. The Conservative party has indicated that failing secondary schools should be outside of Local Authorities. Further expansion of school academies seems to be on the cards.

This event will examine the government’s proposals for failing secondary schools – including a new model for trust schools – the case for expanding academies and the impact on the funding for the 14-19 phase.

Tricia Hartley, Chief Executive of the Campaign for Learning will summarise the government’s proposals for failing schools. Sam Freedman from Policy Exchange will consider the case for expanding academies and Mark Corney, Policy Adviser to the Campaign will look at the implications for funding and managing the 14-19 phase.
