All 'Failing' Schools To Be Academies

Every school in England rated inadequate by Ofsted, up to 1,000 over five years, will become an academy, under a bill to be published later.
The Education and Adoption Bill will also scrap the requirement for academy sponsors to consult locally on whether they should take over schools.
The aim is to "sweep away bureaucratic and legal loopholes", said Education Secretary Nicky Morgan.
Labour said the "divisive" bill missed the challenges faced by schools.
The government says campaigners have too often been able to delay or overrule the process by which schools deemed failing by Ofsted become academies. Some 235 schools are currently deemed to be failing, while 1,100 became sponsored academies over the course of the last Parliament.
The government estimates up to 1,000 more schools will become academies by 2020, if the bill is passed.
