Commenting on David Cameron's plans to end the 'state's monopoly' of public services with a forthcoming White Paper, Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, the largest teachers' union, said;

"The demonising of local authorities, their 'grip' and the 'damage' done by them, betrays a wilful ignorance of the great benefits they bring.
"What the Prime Minister seeks is nothing short of the end of state education and coherent public services."
