Powell-Davies, Martin
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v50 n1 p61-69 2008
The National Union of Teachers' 2007 pamphlet "Academies--Looking Beyond the Spin: why the NUT calls for a different approach" lists six reasons why the NUT opposes Academies, schools run by private sponsors using public money. In this article, the Secretary of the Lewisham NUT presents evidence to show how the Academies operated by the Haberdashers' Company in Lewisham, South London, carry out each of these six threats to education.
