Education... The govt gives and takes away? 

Can someone help me get this straight on education? In order to 'escape from the control of local authorities' schools that become 'independents' will be given the carrot of exemption from the National Curriculum if the current White Paper proposals become law. Meanwhile other legisation is proposed setting up a National Curriculum for early years education... Is this just possibly a little contradictory?

By the way I trust that our MPs remember we actually have a policy on early years education which is highly Liberal and which directly contradicts the assumptions in the governments latest soundbites. The one on community education initiatives and on individual learning resources for reading...

And I am still looking for some enlightenment on the points I raised earlier about private companies taking over schools.
