The National Association of Head Teachers has spoken out against the £25m relaunch of City Technology Colleges yesterday which it says excludes state schools, the Guardian reports (p4).
The new programme promises equipment and cash to grant maintained and religious schools which specialise in science and technology but local authority schools cannot apply.
General Secretary of the NAHT, David Hart, said every school needed financial assistance to develop technological teaching.
The Association of Metropolitan Authorities is considering mounting a legal challenge against John Patten over its schools exclusion, the paper reports.
On the same day Parents against Opting Out, a new national group, demanded equal treatment in the debate over whether schools should choose to leave local authority control.
