Pugh in call for parents ballot

Southport's MP John Pugh moved an amendment to the Academies Bill to allow parents to trigger a ballot if a school governing body is divided over moving to Academy status. You can hear the debate from the Radio 4 Yesterday in Parliament. This an an interesting development for Lib Dem backbenchers in challenging the Government and presenting a distinctive Liberal view.
You can see the full debate in Hansard. John is a former teacher at local Comprehensive Schools as well as at Merchant Taylor's Crosby.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
