As well as demolishing Coalition Government claims about the “Free School” experiment, Henry does a neat job on Policy Exchange’s analysis.
For David Cameron to use the Policy Exchange report as the basis for an election pledge to go for another 500 “Free Schools” is bonkers. Nothing surprising there. Let’s not forget there is no such thing as a “Free School”. Tax Payer’s note.
But it’s Policy Exchange’s analysis of the data which takes a big hit. Note to politicians: please stop quoting your own privately funded researchers as experts. We all know they are half-wits. What’s really scary is, how many of these fuck-wits go on to even more dangerous positions of power.
