A new report examines high performing education systems and make recommendations for change in England. The report, Developing a new locality system for English Schools, by Susan Cousin and Jonathan Crossley-Holland, focuses on the middle tier.
It calls for a review of the current school system in England to reduce the fragmentation, duplication and anomalies of the present system by building a strong middle tier.
It is based on research and contributions from a broad range of education experts, including Sir Jon Coles CEO of United Learning and our chair, and Christine Gilbert, Visiting Professor at UCL and a former head of Ofsted; as well as our Executive Director Dame Sue John.
