A new report published today by the EDSK think-tank suggests making a host of changes to the way all schools in England are run. It says all state schools should be put on the same footing, given the same status and be funded directly through central government. Tes reports.
Here are two of the seven key recommendations from the report published today.
1. People earning more than £60k should be named
Alongside annual accounts, all state schools should publish the names and total remuneration for any individual earning more than £60,000 including base salaries, bonuses and pension payments.
2. Maintained schools should join local school trusts
It says that the default for maintained schools should be to move into a local trust that will be run by councils under a similar model to multi-academy trusts. However, each school will be funded directly rather than money going to the local education authority and then being passed on to schools.
