The Parents, The Politician and The Moneymakers – A warning for NZ schools

The Parents, The Politician and the Carpetbagger is a short film that follows parents and teachers from Downhills School, England as they try to stop Education secretary, Michael Gove, forcing their school to become part of the Harris academy chain.   The parents, teachers and community fight to prevent it happening.  Watch it now.

The film challenges Department of Education claims that academies out perform non-academies, which they don’t.

It reveals how local authorities are being bullied into serving up schools for forced academisation, just to keep the Minister sweet.

How they were made to sound like raving Communists.

How they were inspected and found to  have good teachers and governance and be improving – then at the behest of Gove they were suddenly re-inspected and found to be failing in all areas.

It shows who is set to profit from the privitisation of schools.

This is a must watch for anyone wanting to know what New Zealand is letting itself in for.

Watch it now.
