Opposition grows as Catholic Church joins unions to block plans to turn schools into academies | News

The Education and Adoption Bill, championed by education secretary Nicky Morgan, pictured, is currently making its way through Parliament. It will turn all struggling state-maintained schools into academies, and will force any underperforming academy to be taken over by a new sponsor.
