LEAS WILL BE DRIVING FORCE IN EDUCATION ACTION ZONES

In a letter to The Guardian (p14) Martin Rogers of The Education Network, criticises 'anti-local authority' coverage of education policy.

He says that discussion of government proposals on Education Action Zones threatens to undermine the objectives being set for raising aspiration and achievement.

He points out that LEAs will be the driving force or will take a lead part in the running of the proposed zones and it is unhelpfully negative to characterise the proposals as a 'private schools plan.'

He writes, 'While the performance of LEAs may be mixed, the government - indeed the country as a whole - needs them to take a lead in achieving locally the improvements to education which everyone desires.'

Management in education is also the subject of other letters to the editor in The Guardian.
