Government climbdown over forced academies plan in England – BBC News

Plans to force all of England’s schools to become academies are being abandoned in a government climbdown. Education Secretary Nicky Morgan hopes the concessions will meet the demands of Tory rebels opposed to compelling high-performing schools to convert.
This was about the government listening, she said, adding ministers understood top schools should retain the choice on whether to convert.
The move comes days after threats of industrial action by head teachers.
