Do academies "give control back to teachers"?

    Not only is the answer to the OP 'no', but the Conservatives are in cloud cuckoo land over this: it says in the white paper that a subject leader could lead their subject across 30 schools. Do they really believe this to be actually possible? I fear that they do. And it will lead to many a dysfunctional department when they enforce these practices on MATs.

    Popcorn anyone? It would be fun to sit and watch were it not so damaging to children as it is going to be.

    I said this elsewhere... I work in an Academy... have done since January... haven't planned a lesson yet. All of them on a shared drive. Work scrutinies exist to check I am delivering the correct content...

    No 'autonomy' or 'independence'.
