Parliament Petition: Scrap plans to force state schools to become Academies

There is a petition on the government website calling on for plans to force all state schools to become academies to be scrapped.

The petition reads:

“Scrap plans to force state schools to become academies.

State schools are accountable to parents, the local community and to local authorities. By forcing schools to become academies the accountability will be to a trust and to accountants. Her Majesty Chief Inspector of schools has concerns over education provided in academies and so should you.”

The petition has 60,000 signatures already and is seeking 1 million.
