Academies: are they just white elephants?

The academy war is not over. Prejudice can be defined as insulting a group of people without fact. Look at Mr Kelly's comment on the NASUWT: "one suspects its executives regret decimalisation, much preferred television when we had the two channels and only holiday in caravans and never abroad."

I find it hard to believe that such suppositions and generalisations are made without bias. By the way, the fight is not just about "cash and contracts". It's about the impact of business models and privatisation on schools.
