The politics behind school reform
14 Oct 2010
The first programme in my latest series 'Need To Know' is now airing on Teachers TV.
It looks at the politics behind the latest school reforms, as I visit the party conferences of the coalition government partners to ask: what is the thinking behind the so-called 'supply side revolution' for schools and how will the academies and 'free schools' policies work out in practice?

The next programme in the series will visit one of the first schools to convert to academy status: Watford Grammar School for Boys. It will appear here next week.
