Hey! Bankers! Leave Those Kids Alone: The Fight to Save Islington Green School
Muller, Ken
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v50 n1 p71-84 2008
The author traces the history of the campaign to stop Islington Green School being closed and turned into an academy specialising in business and financial services. Although the campaign, after a number of successes now looks as if it might fail in its immediate objective, the author argues that the battle was still worth fighting because of the contribution it has made to the growing anti-academies movement in England. (Contains 24 notes.) [This is a revised and updated version of a previous article, "Fighting Academies in Islington" which appeared in the Socialist Education Journal, 1 (2006), pp. 20-22.]
