Now there's a shocker

‘Dozens of good schools are to be converted into city academies despite Government claims that the initiative is aimed at failing schools. Only six of the 67 schools earmarked by the Department for Education and Skills to be re-launched as "independent" academies, backed by sponsors, are in special measures – the Ofsted category that follows a failed report. Critics said last night that huge amounts of money were being wasted to repackage good schools in an attempt to ensure the success of the £5 billion policy that Tony Blair hopes will be his education legacy.’

Does anyone want to tell me who, exactly, is supposed to be surprised by this ‘revelation’?
