Co-op is the key
Ed Balls, Schools Secretary, has called on more schools to consider the co-operative model as he launched the 15th co-operative trust in west Oldham. So far 25 schools have adopted the approach and Mr Balls said he hoped to see more than 200 schools adopt the model over the next year. "Our pilot of co-operative governance trust schools is going from strength to strength," he said. "Fifteen are up and running and the Co-operative College is working with a further 60 lead schools."
