    I meant devolving it to local level, probably council level.

    Glad to see we're on the same page though

    I thought it was already devolved to a council level, but if not I'm in favour of such an idea, it's good to agree on something again

    I don't believe this bill is at all a wise move. Point 2.1.a, is the exclusively by the government? i.e no external funding is permitted? Point 2.1.e is completely ignorant to some academies who are also faith schools, who have criteria such as involvement in faith. I also think having a "one size fits all policy" isn't appropriate with young people's education as different schools, areas and pupils have different needs.
    I echo this.

    Education is a tricky one tbh, i an skeptical about a centralised curriculum just as im skeptical of academies and devolved education.

    My own vision for our education system is one that probably isnt shared by the majority of the house though, probably not even the majority of my party or the government.

    My issue with locally devolved education is that it would be bad for some areas to offer a better curriculum than other areas, my issue with centralisation is that a "one size fits all policy" isnt best for our kids and my issue with a tripartite ssystem is that i dont believe that 11 years old is the right age to put children onto whats effectively their career path.

    That being said I'd like to see a concoction of the three, taking the best bits from them all. This bill does none of that, offering the worst parts of a centralised system and little of anything else.

    Thats probably the only thing I agree with you on. It wouldn't be entirely fair.

    The french model seems good, and I think would be a non-artificial way to combat the price inflation of holiday makers and flight companies ect. which stop many families being able to go on holiday outside of term time as they simply can't afford the hiked up costs. My issue is allowing each individual school decide, and while lime-man didn't specifiy, that was the impression I got from his post, if that impression was wrong I apologise.
    Oh it seems you were right. Suffice to say I agree with you and not Lime-man.

    One of the few good things about academisation was getting rid of the National Curriculum and giving schools more freedom about what they teach. This bill would be a backwards step, it does exactly the opposite of what teachers are asking for.

    You don't agree on that point. I don’t think schools/local authorities should choose when to set holidays.
