If you want to help a Tory donor make a huge profit from failing to educate your child, send them to a Free School!
There, they’ll be taught by people who have no qualifications whatsoever, before the school fails its Ofsted inspection and goes on to be closed down as a hazard to education standards.
The flagship Conservative election pledge to open a further 500 free schools in England is being put into practice, with applications invited for new schools.
The government wants to create 270,000 extra places in free schools over the next five years.
Education Secretary Nicky Morgan described them as “modern engines of social justice”.
Labour’s Tristram Hunt said it was an “irresponsible” use of public funds.
And Labour’s ‘plastic Tory’ leadership candidate Liz Kendall thinks they’re a good idea.
