A former chief inspector of schools has been charged with steering improvements to Birmingham's education system following the alleged "Trojan Horse" plot.
Sir Mike Tomlinson is to become education commissioner with responsibility for improving standards in the city's classrooms, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said.
His appointment is a direct result of the fallout from the anonymous "Trojan Horse" letter, which alleged an extremist Muslim plot to seize control of several Birmingham schools was under way.
A damning report into those claims led by former anti-terror chief Peter Clarke and published in July, found "clear evidence" of a group of like-minded individuals working to support "extremist views" in classrooms.
That report, commissioned by Ms Morgan's predecessor Michael Gove, concluded there had been "co-ordinated, deliberate and sustained action, carried out by a number of associated individuals, to introduce an intolerant and aggressive Islamic ethos into a few schools in Birmingham".
However, it did not find any evidence of "terrorism, radicalisation or violent extremism in the schools of concern in Birmingham".
The appointment of experienced educationalist and former teacher Sir Mike, who was chief inspector from 2000 to 2002 and later chair of the Hackney Learning Trust where he helped improve the London borough's education standards, has been welcomed by Birmingham City Council.

An eight-year-old pupil has been excluded from a Birmingham primary school after allegedly threatening another classmate with a knife in the toilets.
It's reported to have taken place at Wheelers Lane Primary School in Kings Heath on the last day of term.
Parents have criticised the school for not contacting the police on the day of the incident and some had threatened to withdraw their children after the pupil returned last week.
Since then the child has been temporarily excluded.
The school has met with the parent and advised that there will be a fixed term exclusion and the school reserves the right to make it permanent.’’
