Are free school “consultations” really intended to gather local opinion?

Following the apparent statement of the obvious on Friday (April 27th) from the proposers of the Becket Keys Church of England School that “as a result of the consultation it is our intention to enter into a Funding Agreement with the Secretary of State”, one of our members wrote a post for the Local Schools Network that questions the point of these exercises when their output is completely controlled by proposers.

The comments section also contains some interesting links that we thought might be of interest to visitors to this site.
