I'm intrigued too... Only time will tell I guess. I've just been reading about the first one in London which will have the children there from 8am-6pm and will have 2 week long half terms and a 4 week summer holiday. It's going to take years to determine whether it'll be effective or a huge failure. It's a gamble.

I just posted this article on the Melissa Benn thread. Free Schools - for and against. It's Benn (anti) debating with Rachel Wolf (for) of the New School Network. Covers most points.
