Hodge slams new free school

March 31, 2014 11:07 am

Margaret Hodge, Chair of the Public Accounts Committee has criticised the Government’s decision to approve plans to spend £45 million on a new free school in central London.  Labour MP Margaret Hodge dismissed the 500-place Harris Westminster Sixth Form as “nothing more than a vanity project that is taking precious resources away from areas which really need it in a time of austerity”. The National Union of Teachers (NUT) criticised the amount given to the school, which is due to open in September with a first academically selective intake of 125 students.
