Concerns have been expressed at a number at recent public discussions about:

–     the increasing fragmentation of the primary and secondary school system through these state funded privatised schools  – Croydon Assembly on 15 November.

–    the problems of getting Black British History into teaching in schools – African History+ @Croydon event on 22 November.

The lack of power the Council over these state funded privatised schools is discussed by me in Croydon Citizen at
