Making primary schools into academies does not boost results, says report | Education | The Guardian

Pupils at early converters to academy status did not outperform children at schools that converted later, finds LSE report

Converting primary schools into academies has failed to improve their results, according to a study by the London School of Economics – calling into question government policy that all state schools in England should be pushed towards academy status.

The authors of the report looked at the results of primary schools that changed from being maintained by local authorities to being academies run by autonomous trusts, and found no improvement compared with similar schools that converted later.
