    Opinions ...

    For me:
    - I missed this proposed massive overhaul in the Conservative Manifesto (It wasn't there - though pro-academisation rhetoric was)

    - I missed the evidence that academisation works at the primary level. As did the Education Select Committee http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmselect/cmeduc/258/25809.htm#a42. (This isn't to say the evidence is there at secondary level, rather that this is a much larger step because relatively few primaries are acadmies; and also because of this there is less of an evidence base to draw from - so the step is both more radical and with less possibility of supporting evidence).

    - From the above, why are the Conservatives (previously the Con-Dems, but with one party obviously the source of policy) enforcing overhauls of public sector provision (see NHS), with neither a mandate nor (so far as I'm aware) significant expert or professional backing, pursuing this policy?
