Staff not needed

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your - KING JUAN

RE: Five city schools join new academy bids, ET, June 28.

Surely the fact that so many schools are des­per­ate to leave lo­cal author­ity con­trol is damn­ing in­dict­ment on Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil’s ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment.

Also, with many schools soon likely to be run­ning them­selves, li­braries, sport, the­atres etc run by the cul­tural trust and refuse col­lec­tion pro­cess­ing soon to be taken over by an arms-length man­age­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion, how come we still need a huge coun­cil staff and a chief ex­ec­u­tive on a big­ger salary than the Prime Min­is­ter?

In the pri­vate sec­tor, a busi­ness with dra­mat­i­cally fewer re­spon­si­bil­i­ties would lay off staff.
