Academy trust lauded by Cameron in 'serious breaches' of guidelines
Investigation into Perry Beeches academy trust finds serious concerns about financial management, control and governance [...] An academy trust singled out for praise by David Cameron and both current and former Conservative education secretaries has been given a financial notice to improve, after an investigation found “serious breaches” of guidelines.

Government reports raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest involving Perry Beeches academy trust and companies linked to some of its senior administrators. They also found problems with the number of pupils declared as eligible for free school meals. [...] The previous year, Gove was told the Conservative party conference: “There are some amazing schools in Birmingham, there are some great independent schools, there are some great grammar schools, but I have to say the best schools in Birmingham are Perry Beeches I and Perry Beeches II.”

The current education secretary Nicky Morgan has also spoken favourably about the trust.

Hey Britain – Your Kids Have Just Been Privatised
"Thatcher said the problem with socialism is that you run out of other people money. Henry VIII will tell you the problem with crony capitalism is you eventually run out of other people’s assets to sell." [...] In George Osborne’s mercurial March 2016 budget he showed his own Machiavellian sleight of hand. He is now seen as a politician whose leadership ambitions come before the welfare of the British people. Osborne’s allegiance is to The City not the country. When he and Peter Mandelson holidayed on financier Nat Rothschild’s yacht do you think they talked about free school meals and increasing the economic opportunities of the people in Grimsby? [...] Look at his actions and we see that one of Osborne’s aims is to reinstate the class divisions that began to ebb away with socially progressive policies. This last budget sought to weave a line into the fabric of society between the haves and have-nots. [...] We are at the end of the debt cycle and there’s nowhere else to go. [...] This is not the budget for the next generation of young people. This is the budget for the next generation of rent-seekers, moneymen and crony capitalists.

Stephen Crabb: 'No further plans' for welfare cuts
BIG BREAKDOWN W INFOGRAPHIC OF THE BUDGET and DWP Budget // A Downing Street spokesman said the government would still deliver on its commitment to save £12bn from welfare by the end of the Parliament in 2020. [...] The Conservative leadership has been under fire - including from some of its own backbenchers - over the cuts to disability payments, which came at the same time as tax cuts for higher earners.
Mr Duncan Smith - who resigned on Friday - said this flew in the face of Mr Cameron and Mr Osborne's oft-repeated claim that "we are all in this together". [...] [ CAMERON ] "None of this would be possible if it wasn't for the actions of this government and the work of the chancellor in turning our economy around." //&! No more welfare cuts, for now - bbc.in/1pGxCV4 - still 2015 budget post-election had £12bn in the card!

[...] He branded slash in benefits for the disabled as being 'indefensible.' IDS hit out at Osborne for lack of awareness and for letting the welfare system be 'salami-sliced' [...] 'I am unable to watch passively whilst certain policies are enacted in order to meet the fiscal self-imposed restraints that I believe are more and more perceived as distinctly political rather than in the national economic interest,' he wrote. The former Tory leader and standard-bearer for the Eurosceptic Right of the party admitted he wanted to cut benefits enjoyed by wealthy pensioners, but these plans were blocked by the Chancellor and the Prime Minister. [...] Mr Duncan Smith believed the Chancellor was too sly and devious in the way he went about balancing the nation’s books. [ Osborne wanted also to increase VAT Solar Panels ]

BBC Radio 5 live - In Short, Is the UK’s 'superficial' maths teaching style making us fall behind?
According to Andreas Schleicher of the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development, children in the UK are falling behind in maths, due to a ‘superficial’ teaching style based on memorising facts, rather than understanding mathematical concepts.

Mathematician and co-author of Maths for Mums and Dads, Rob Eastaway thinks that “good ways of teaching are problem solving and real world context.”

When teaching 9 and 10 year olds he uses maths and magic, playing number games with the children which makes them “excited…they want to know how, explore and investigate”.

Every English school to become an academy, ministers to announce | Education | The Guardian
Education bill, set to be published within days, will take every single school in England out of local government control, Legislation to turn every school in England into an academy independent of local authority control will be unveiled in the budget on Wednesday. Draft leglislation, to be published possibly as early as Thursday, will begin the process of implementing a pledge made by David Cameron in his conference speech last autumn. The prime minister said his “vision for our schooling system” was to place education into the hands of headteachers and teachers rather than “bureaucrats”. [...] accountability and oversight falls on to Whitehall alone. [...] “no evidence to suggest that academisation in and of itself leads to school improvement”. [...] Concerns have already been raised about whether there would be enough good sponsors to take on schools.

Secondary school places for all 'undeliverable', councils warn - BBC News
[ planning taken out of hands of councils ] [ first the teachers strike (2014), then the doctors strike (2015/2016) - bit.ly/1T3QTfc ] The legal duty of councils in England to ensure that every child has a school place could soon become undeliverable, local authorities have warned. With a population bulge about to hit secondary schools, councils want powers to open new maintained schools and to compel academies to expand. Thousands of children are due to hear on Tuesday which secondary school they will attend from September. However the government says the warning amounts to "scaremongering". The population bulge which has put primary schools under pressure will start hitting secondary schools this year, according to official figures. Last year councils had to provide 2,740,000 secondary school places, but this will rise to 3,287,000 by 2024, the figures predict.

Should Ofsted get a US boss? - BBC News
In particular, they are considering candidates who have been involved in the charter school movement, state-funded independent schools, with a similar ideological DNA to academies and free schools in England. The big impact of charter schools has been in the most deprived urban areas, credited with re-energising schools that had been in a state of chronic decline. It's a claim rejected by their opponents, particularly in US teachers' unions, who say that the successful glitz and PR around charter schools is not backed up by any significant long-term advantage. Some charter schools do well, some do badly... like any other type of school, they argue. The current mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has been accused by charter school groups of putting up "roadblocks" to their expansion.

Calls for 'homegrown talent' to take over as next Ofsted chief | Education | The Guardian
Concerns raised over reports that the education secretary wants to appoint an American with a record of resisting unions to replace Sir Michael Wilshaw [...] Morgan is reportedly looking overseas to replace Michael Wilshaw, who will stand down in December. According to the Sunday Times, she is keen to recruit an outsider who has defeated union resistance to education changes abroad in order to raise school standards in the UK. [...] we’ve seen year after year, ministers are failing to recruit and retain enough teachers, threatening our future economic success and the prospects of young people in the global education race.” [...] Tensions between state school leaders and Ofsted have risen under Wilshaw’s reign, in part because of the threat of struggling schools being turned into academies after receiving critical inspections.

Heads warn over pupils' untreated mental health issues - BBC News
Children's untreated mental health issues could spiral into psychiatric problems later in life unless more is done in schools, say head teachers. The National Association of Head Teachers says with a fifth of children having a mental health problem before age 11, it is a key concern. A snapshot survey of 1,455 English heads suggests two-thirds of primary schools cannot deal with such issues. The government says it has ring-fenced £1.4bn for children's mental health. //&!
