    No two schools are alike. But the government doesn’t seem to agree. It wants to rush through plans to force every single school in England to become an academy – the type of school paid for by taxpayers, but run by businesses, sponsors or trusts.

    Many teachers and parents are already standing against the plans, saying that they’re ‘a step towards privatisation’, ignore local views, put profit before quality of education and could force some schools to close.

    There is a petition going round our school (High Storrs Secondary School) that calls on Nick Clegg (our local MP) to represent our views. Can you join this petition?
    Please help our school have the right to choose its own future and sign the petition!

    Isn't the whole point of an academy is that every school can now be different as there's a lot more control at a local level?

    You say they put profit before quality of education and ignore local views but haven't stated why that's the case.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
