Need to know about them
er... dunno why it's added some blurb there...

it can be difficult.......my middle son is doing after school revision classes now 4 times a week.......we live 5 miles from the school....many of the children live up to 10 miles from the school........ so if they want to attend revision classes then hey have to get parents to pick them up or walk or pay for a couple of buses to get them home. so the children of parents who cannot afford to run a car are going to be much less likely to attend and benefit from the extra lessons.....also makes it more difficult for parents to attend events
But the kids from the car-less families are getting to school, so getting home from the revision classes would only be the same as going home from school, but a bit later?
In London, kids under 16 don't have to pay for buses - I guess this is not the case everywhere?
Wilkie, Education in Wales is devolved to the Welsh Assembly Government... so that's one of many things they can't technically blame Cameron for...
Health is another one...
Must admit I'm not as up on this as when I worked in education, but my understanding of it was that the "free" schools got greater public funding per pupil - so it would be no surprise if they did better. I also think they aren't obliged to follow the national curriculum. This seems rather odd; if it's so important that everybody at non-free schools is obliged to follow it, why would you let free schools pick and choose which bits to teach?
I'd also be interested in the arrangements for inspection.
