DfE Invites Public to Hold Them to Account

Tuesday 20th July 2010

The Department for Education (DfE) have published their key policy commitments and invited the public to hold them to account on delivery.

The draft Structural Reform Plan (SRP) signals a reduction in restrictive and bureaucratic targets, which ministers claim meant little to the public. Instead, the new Government are inviting the public to view and challenge all their key priorities for schools over the coming years, including dates for completion.

The SRP will be just one of the plans published by all major departments across Whitehall. The DfE claim their plans are designed to take power away from Whitehall and place it into the hands of people and communities. Once the reforms are in place, the DfE claim that people themselves will have the power to improve the country and public services, through the "mechanisms of local democratic accountability, competition, choice and social action".

The SRP outlines dates for cutting bureaucracy in schools, setting up free schools and academies, introducing the new pupil premium and creating new technical colleges for vocational and technical education. It can be downloaded from the DfE website using the link below.
