There seems to be more and more coming to light about financial irregularities in academy chains. Perhaps this has something to do with the recent apparent change of heart on forcing all schools to convert.

But head teachers earning £120k a year. Really?

No. That is driven by opposition from some Conservative backbenchers which means it was unlikely the government would have been able to get the necessary legislation through parliament.

Yes. It is towards the top end of the scale but a number of head teachers at LA controlled schools earn more than that.

They have done another U turn so a O turn.

The same is happening with benefit cuts for people with disabilities. They did a U turn and now O back to the plan again.
