"Death knell for education company"

Another great headline in the Yorkshire Post today. It was great to read the small piece...

'A Leadership shake-up of under-fire children's services in Leeds is likely to spell the end for an organisation which has run schools since 2011(?). Leeds Council is looking to abolish Education Leeds, a council owned company, next March and transfer its staff and responsibilities to the Council by April 2011. Council bosses say that the proposed reorganiastion is not a direct response to a recent Ofsted inspection which branded aspects of child protection services as "inadequate". The council said the merger would strengthen services by putting everything into one dedicated directorate. Council chief executive Paul Rogerson said "In the current climate it is clear that we need to harness all of the resources that are available to us and ensure that they are used consistently to the best possible effect".'

We should be grateful for small mercies and at least they didn't include another photograph!
