Academies are Tory Trojan Horses

Excellent analysis of the profit motive which is driving the growth of academies and the decline of public education in the UK, by Trevor Fisher writing on the New Statesman blog. 'Academies and free schools are Trojan Horses exploited by the right of the Conservative Party. It is far from likely that they deliver better educational outcomes in the majority of cases. But they will deliver guaranteed profits as they have done in Sweden and the USA.'  http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/the-staggers/2012/03/free-schools-profit-education
