Motion 25 – 2018 Financial corruption in education



ATL (NEU) Isle of Wight secretary speaking mainly to ii) the return of democracy to all school governing bodies with an elected body including proper representation of staff and parents elected democratically by their appropriate constituencies

25 Financial corruption in education BRENT
THAT Conference believes that there has been an alarming increase in alleged corruption within education as we see ever more frequent reports of scandals to do with alleged corruption in academies and free schools. There has also been exposure of some practices that are legal, such as top-slicing, but are draining our schools of funds and preventing the pupils receiving the education they deserve.

Conference therefore instructs the Executive Committee to put forward to the Joint Executive Council that the Joint Executive Council call on Government and local authorities to consult/negotiate with the education unions on establishing:
(i) a more rigorous and stringent oversight of finances in all education establishments
(ii) the return of democracy to all school governing bodies with an elected body including proper representation of staff and parents elected democratically by their appropriate constituencies
(iii) legislation to ensure immediate full legal safeguards for whistleblowers until the situation is resolved.
Conference further instructs the Executive Committee to put forward to the Joint Executive Council that the Joint Executive Council produce a publication with examples illustrating our great concern and putting forward the measures that could and should be taken by Government and local authorities to combat this misuse of public funds.

Proposer: Hank Roberts Seconder: John Roche
