Barnet Anti Academies Alliance launched into the blogosphere

The website for the new campaign Barnet Anti Academies Alliance is up and running. New content added daily, hopefully.

To contact the camapign, please email

The website is here. The lead article says:
We are a group of parents, trade unionists, school students, and residents of Barnet. We want to stop Barnet schools becoming academies. To any school wishing to become an academy we are issuing this challenge:

- organise an open debate on the pros and cons of becoming an academy. The more people who know what it involves, we believe, the fewer schools will want to go down this road.

- before applying to become an academy, hold a ballot of parents and staff – and agree to respect the result.
