Lib Dem campaigners across the country are fighting to stop Conservative plans that would mean parents and teachers have no say over the running of local schools. In Winchester, no school is currently an academy. The Conservative Government's plan means all will be forced to become an academy.
In Hampshire, this makes no sense. 84% of Hampshire schools are already rated 'good' or 'outstanding'.
In Winchester, it makes even less sense. All our schools are rated 'good' or 'outstanding'!
We think local parents and teachers know what’s best for their school. Parent governors do a valuable service to the community. They should be applauded, not abolished.
