Academies - a complete and utter scam?

What is going on? Education becoming a way to give talentless no marks who know nothing and have nothing they are about, beyond their own stunted self regard and sticky fingers, to enrich themselves?

I only ask for information, of course.

I think it's a scandal. All that land and buildings given away.

FleurDuMal - 19 Nov 2018 21:17:11 (#2 of 12)

I completely agree.

Scam - absolutely.

Apologies, fender.

Duplicate your link.

Academies - a complete and utter scam?

Universities too.

Academies are another bunce-for-their-mates scam by the Tories.

And some of them have "HR Directors" and God knows what else. I can't see educating our kids as a business, with business strategies (such as they are), bnusines speak and empty goals talked up taht are nothing to do with education.

Business seeks control and consistency. Raw material inputs, processes for adding value.

Schools, like hospitals, must deal with the glorious variability of inputs - children.
