Academies petition on Prime Minister's website
"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to support a change to the law to make academies subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000."
"Academies are all-ability, state-funded schools" according to the department for children, schools and families. Unlike most state-funded schools they are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
This makes academies unusual in that they get to spend large amounts of public money with very little public accountability.
Publicly funded Further Education Colleges, Higher Education Colleges and Universities and most state-funded schools are all to the Freedom of Information Act there is no reason why academies should be any different."
