Curb parent power, say heads

When society's servants speak to their masters in this way, you know you are in trouble. I am all for head teachers having power to run their schools. To hold someone responsible for the performance of any organisation without giving them day-to-day power to make decisions is always a mistake. However, to blame parents in general for our current malaise is a bit rich. The ideas which Digby Jones of the CBI talked about to the head teachers' conference were imposed by the educational establishment.
