Education Secretary Nicky Morgan has come under increasing pressure over the academisation of schools.
The newest legislation, as announced in last month's Budget, will mean all schools will be forced to become academies, given jurisdiction over their own budgets, curriculum, staff, term times and timetables, whether they want this autonomy or not, by 2020.
This has angered a lot of people, including the National Union of Teachers which said it is:
Utterly opposed to the Government’s White Paper proposals to convert all schools to academies, end democratic accountability in England’s education system and threaten teachers' pay and conditions.
Particularly the spelling of 'sincerely'...
Educational Excellence Everywhere has been condemned by the NUT who implore Labour to oppose the white paper, and are campaigning on #TellNickyNo, and via two parliamentary petitions against the academisation of schools, which have both been signed by over 140,000 people.
So it's good we have an Education Secretary who has a strong grasp upon 'the three R's' of 'Reading', 'Writing' and 'Arithmetic'.
A spokesperson for the Department of Education told indy100:
It was just a writing error, kind of the way it’s been scribbled when you’re writing in a car. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it as far as I’m aware.
