Nicky Morgan to be grilled on White Paper this afternoon

From the Petitions Team, House of Commons

Dear Martin Francis,

You recently signed the petition "Hold a public inquiry and a referendum over turning all schools into academies":

You may be interested to know that on Wednesday 27 April at 2.30pm, the House of Commons Education Committee will question Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP, Secretary of State for Education, on the policies announced in the Department for Education’s White Paper: Educational Excellence Everywhere. This includes Government plans for all schools to become academies.

Talking about the session, the Chair of the Education Committee, Neil Carmichael MP, said:
As a Committee, we are determined to take a close eye to the Government’s latest proposals for education policies and this session provides an early opportunity for us to press the Secretary of State on her plans for all schools become academies by 2022. We will also want to pick up on a number of other significant challenges to the success of our education system today, including issues relating to teacher supply, school leadership, and school funding.
You can watch the session on live and on demand afterwards on Parliament TV:

From past evidence she is such a witless performer that the net result of all those nasty people asking her difficult questions on TV will be that people feel sorry for her.
