If it's 'the family' it can go where it needs to can't it?

No mention of Gove and faith schools at the bbc and no mention of where the money's coming from, the two big issues!
For me, the value of a climb is the sum of three inseparable elements, all equally important: aesthetics, history, and ethics

Gotta say, the Greens win this one by a mile imo.

Abolish SATs and league tables; establish a system of self-evaluation for schools, monitored by local education authorities; remove public schools’ charitable status and provide state funding to them to make them accessible to all local children; children with disabilities and special educational needs should be given the opportunity to attend their local school; require all schools to embrace a multi-faith perspective; abolish the Academy programme; abolish tuition fees and provide students with grants for living expenses.


Or put simply, copy the most successful education system in the world. Roughly, anyway.
