Imagine that you have 2 children that you claim to love equally.
You only ever praise one of them.
You give all your attention to that one child.
You give all your money to that one child.
You tell the world that when you have other children you only want them to be like that one child.
When that one child gets results that are below par, you still say it is "outstanding" even though the other child gets better results.
What message are the children really sent?
How does each child feel about you as a parent?
Nick Gibb, Education Minister, tells ResearchED, "academies are not necessarily better than maintained schools".
