Whatever your feelings about the evolution of the academies programme, it is quite simply impossible to hold a fully informed opinion without hearing Andrew Adonis’ side of the story. Because without his personal vision, energy and above all, absolute determination to reform a system that by the late 90s was failing vast numbers of children to an extent that is often forgotten when the perceived inadequacies of today’s schools are being discussed, the whole project would almost certainly never even have got beyond the memo stage. Here, Adonis explains the thinking (and negotiations) behind every step of the strategy as well as setting out what needs to happen now in order to ensure that all our young people get the education they deserve. As a political memoir, it is compellingly readable; as a manifesto for change, it is practically irresistible.
