The LGiU have recently published a study into how local authorities can help with school improvements. Apparently, it has occurred to Whitehall that the proliferation of academies will mean that there are so many schools that Whitehall simply can't superintend them effectively. Hence, Whitehall is thinking about creating a middle tier of authorities. This sounds awfully like a set of local education authorities. Let us hope that they have some form of democratic accountability (They might even think of electing people in public elections and calling them councillors).
