The Times Educational Supplement reports on the tussles between local authorities and grant maintained schools over ownership of properties and land.

The Education secretary John Patten is to rule on 14 disputes for control of assets, running into millions of pounds, which have been handed over to schools on opting out.

When a school opts out of local authority control it also becomes the owner of the assets.

Problems arise over shared use, for example a primary school having occasional use of a secondary school field.

Transfers have to be approved by the Leeds based Education Assets Board and in difficult cases are referred to the Secretary of State.
