Liz Truss and the Education Committee


Recommended Posts

Read the report and then listened to news about free schools. Is this where early years setting are also heading?? If so why the pressure on us to have so many qualifications and free school dont need a qualified teacher.


What is a free school? (COPIED FROM BBC NEWS)


Free schools are set up by groups of parents, teachers, charities, businesses, universities, trusts, religious or voluntary groups, but funded directly by central government.


They can be run by an "education provider" - an organisation or company brought in by the group setting up the school - but these firms are not allowed to make a profit.


The schools are established as academies, independent of local authorities and with increased control over their curriculum, teachers' pay and conditions, and the length of school terms and days.
