The Devon NUT Campaign against Trust Schools
Clinch, Dave
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v50 n1 p97-102 2008
When the Devon County Council announced that six secondary schools in the South Devon area were to become "Pathfinder Schools" for trust status, the Devon National Union of Teachers set about organising a campaign to defend the county's comprehensive schools. This campaign has proved successful in the case of Tavistock College, causing other schools to review their position, but the NUT is not allowing itself to be complacent, and recognises that the very concept of community comprehensive schools is under threat from Gordon Brown's Government. (Contains 2 notes.)
