I have just seen Andrew Turner's letter extolling the benefits of grant-maintained status (TES, March 31).

While he is quite free to promote GM schools, it is surely unacceptable for him to attempt to denigrate LEA maintained schools by the crude verbal trick of naming them "council schools".

Such propagandist approaches to language do him and his cause little credit.
