Success school closure threat
THE Labour-controlled education authority in Hackney, east London, has decided to shut Kingsland Secondary School in what can only be described as a spiteful move. The authority itself is due to be wound up at the end of this month. Closing Kingsland is its parting gift. Parents received a letter at the end of last week informing them of the closure in July of next year. It suggested they remove their children from this September. That leaves parents just a days to find alternatives.
