£100m a year to be returned to schools

Thank Christ!

Now – if the government get get rid of the next 14 tiers of bureaucracy, that will be some achievement, and it will mean that 100’s of millions will be returned to the people rather than contracted companies.

The government is to abandon the most significant education reform of the New Labour era in order to end the centralised control of schools and grant headteachers more powers, the Guardian has learned.

In a totemic break from the Blair years, next week’s education white paper will signal the end of Labour’s national strategies for schools, which includes oversight of the literacy and numeracy hours in primaries. The changes will strip away centralised prescription of teaching methods and dramatically cut the use of private consultants currently employed to improve schools.
