Government wants CofE and Catholics to replace local democracy in running state schools

High-performing Catholic schools are to be given considerable influence over the running and performance of struggling secular schools under plans being drawn up by the Church and government.

Catholic schools are currently bound by strict rules that mean they cannot form federations with their non-faith counterparts. But with the growth of the academies programme and the diminishing influence of local authorities, the Church wants to make a "greater contribution" to the running of different types of schools.
...
The plan follows a similar ambition outlined more than a year ago by the Church of England, which also wanted to offer partnerships and advice to non-Church schools.
...
The Department for Education confirmed that it was in talks with the Catholic Education Service. "We are keen to build up the number of outstanding schools that can provide support as sponsors to underperforming schools," a spokesman said. "As part of this, we are talking to a range of bodies and organisations to explore how they can help undertake this important role."

Bloody theocracy, sticking its damn nose in other people's lives. Especially children who aren't allowed to tell it to fuck off.
