There are fears that five underperforming schools in the North East have been left in limbo and unable to improve, after the government intervened in how they are run.
Bright Tribe academy trust, which it asked to step in, says it has withdrawn from taking over two schools in County Durham because it was not financially viable to do so.
The trusts has delayed taking over three others in Sunderland and Northumberland due to issues around pensions liability, and the lease of a boarding hall.
The Department for Education says it is determined to ensure all of the schools do make improvements.
I think that whole policy has now been called into question - and I would certainly likely to continue to question the government about this academies programme - because we cannot have children and their education being disrupted like this.
