Education Bill and review of the DESC


Recommended Posts

The New Education Bill has its second reading in the Keys on Tuesday 30th June:


Then there is the:

Review into DESC's dealings with Manx schools

The board, made up of three industry professionals, will focus on two main areas:

"The extent to which DESC is providing meaningful governance and oversight of schools and ensuring proper accountability."

Is the Bill going to sort this problem or just make it worse?

Spotlight on the relationship between schools and top civil servants



The relationship between education civil servants and schools is going to come under the microscope.

 . . . ’Over the past 12 months we have been up against a department which has failed to work constructively with the profession on a wide range of issues. The long-running industrial dispute was entirely avoidable.’


Beats me why they are, on the one hand having a review, and on the other hand introducing a Bill which flies in the face of the review. The DESC is seeking control of all education on the Island whilst it is being roundly criticised for the way it uses its current powers.

It will be interesting to see what the MHK's do with this.
