Last week I posted up the article in this fortnight’s Private Eye attacking the government’s plans to neuter the Freedom of Information Act.
That same issue also carries another article, Academy Schools: Morgan’s Meanies, attacking the education for minister for her lies about campaigners against the government’s policy of transforming state schools into academies.
According to the article, she branded them ‘enemies’, and has accused them of unscrupulous tactics, spreading malicious rumours and threatening parents in favour of academy schooling in a press release entitled “Headteachers hit back at enemies of academies”.
This is Nicky Morgan, and so the truth is more likely to be 180 degrees opposed to what she actually says.
The article points out that none of the ‘head teachers’ in the press release are head masters or mistresses. They’re actually the heads of the private education firms, hoping to win contracts to take over their management.
