SCHOOLS SAY COUNCILS COULD DO BETTER

The Times Educational Supplement reports (p7) schools rate the services they receive from their local education authorities as, at best, adequate, a cofidential report by the Audit Commission reveals.

Not one of more than 1,500 schools surveyed felt council services could be described as good and in some cases they were regarded as poor.

Head teachers were particularly concerned about the quality of inspection and advice, pupil services and even their council's knowledge and understanding of schools.

The report, which is still in draft form, raises questions for local education authorities and its findings pose a potential threat to their continued existence, the paper says.
