At no time has Suffolk indicated that it will be "implementing" Labour education policy (TES, February 16). I am pleased, however, that a Labour press release appeared to praise the efforts of Suffolk's Lib Dem-Labour administration for our work in education. This underscores the fact that good practice and innovation are not pure party political products, but the result of partnership between the LEA, community, schools, parents and governors, teachers and staff, and elected representatives.
