More Good School Places
By James O’Shaughnessy, Charlotte Leslie MP
A new report from Policy Exchange argues that the Government’s White Paper on education will do little to help the most disadvantaged pupils. More Good School Places calls for all children at failed state schools to receive up to £6,000 additional funding per annum – the Advantage Premium – to help them access better education.
Other recommendations include the abolition of Local Education Authorities and School Organisation Committees and the creation of Pupil Advocates, directly elected local posts responsible for dismissing management of failed schools and helping children at failed schools find better alternatives.
