As we have seen with academies this is about fragmenting the very principles of free education for all. It is a pathetic and retrograde step for Labour to take. A shameful embarrassment at a point when Ed Miliband was gaining some credibility back on energy policy and housing issues we have managed to give succour to the new labour vision for education which is as far removed from a socialist vision for education as Michael Gove’s himself.
