Public Finance, 23 September 2016

Public Finance published an article after the publication of Reform‘s report, Academy chains unlocked. In the article, the author explored the report’s findings of recent and current government’s policy on academy schools and chains, and what recommendations have been made.

Reform called for a new approach to commissioning, funding, oversight and accountability for academy schools. It recommends that funding for academies should be allocated to the chain for them to dispense as they see fit. There should also be more robust accountability measures, as well as an independent body to be created to make commissioning decisions.”
