I did a book review of Toby Young’s “How To Set Up A Free School” in the Times Ed this week. It was a tough gig as the space given was tiny and there’s a lot to say about this book. At some point near the end of Jan I might release the ‘uncut’ version on here.
One thing I worried about is Young’s tendency to over-idealise the Free School solution. I wrote a book for LKMCo showing that there are possible ups and downs of Free Schools, but with a focus on minimising the downs. The Press Release for the original book is here and the e-book release is here
