My good friend John Sutton has tracked down more information re the parents starting their own schools theme. It comes from: The New Schools Network which is an independent, not for profit organisation set up in 2009. The Network aims to improve the quality of education – particularly for the most deprived – by increasing the number of independent, innovative schools within the state sector.
The site has some information on it re ‘charter schools’ in US, Swedish ‘free schools’ and UK academies. Worth a read for information … bearing in mind that the site might have its own ‘axe to grind’.
Its all information … digest and ponder seems to be thing.
