Southampton: A Case Study on Why Academies Are Not the Answer
Harris, Richard
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v51 n2 p205-214 2009
The author recounts the arrival of two Oasis Community Learning Academies in Southampton through a process of failed political courage to continue supporting the Local Authority. He tells of the subsequent impact when children and parents react against the regime in one of the Academies. In conclusion he challenges the Labour Government over the issues that arise from this case and similar Academy problems.
