New research shows Free Schools boost performance of local schools

Free Schools are raising standards for other pupils across the local community, especially in some of the poorest performing schools, as well for the pupils who attend them. A new report, A Rising Tide: the competitive benefits of Free Schools, by leading think tank Policy Exchange, sets out for the first time detailed analysis on the performance of local schools where a Free School has opened.

Pay off teachers’ student debt, says Policy Exchange
