Articles: Howard calls Selsted school scheme 'half baked'

Contributed by editor on May 19, 2006 - 09:57 PM



At the Schools Organisation Advisory Board (SAOB)  meeting yesterday (18 March) Folkestone and Hythe MP Michael Howard was reported as criticising the scheme to close Selsted School calling it  'half baked and not thought through'.

It was Area Education Officer David Adams who had to report Mr Howard's views at the SOAB meeting.

Mr Adams explained it was a paraphrase of a conversation he had with Michael Howard o­n the morning of the meeting o­n 18 May.

Mr. Howard  had said that he deplored the lack of time he had been given to consider the proposals and had been unable  to draft a written reply.

Mr Howard said he had formed preliminary views but as things were currently stated he was critical of all proposals put forward and he will be publicly criticising them.

The meeting ended with an overwhelming majority for recommending the proposal to consult o­n the possible closure of Selsted school.
