Welcoming the£32m help for schools announced today by schools minister Estelle Morris at the North of England Education Conference, Graham Lane, chair of the LGA's education and lifelong learning executive, said the LEA's role in distributing the money would help ensure the most needy schools were targeted.
Cllr Lane said: 'Local authorities will monitor the improvements made by these schools and will work to spread good practice to ensure standards are maintained.
'The recent Beecham enquiry report details how local education authorities have succeeded in helping failing schools through education action zones and the excellence in cities initiative.
'The good work of LEAs and schools has been acknowledged by the government and this is why today's announcement will place local authorities in a good position to raise standards,' he said.
