    Education reforms may clash with human rights legislation

    According to this article, from today's Independent, the joint parliamentary committee on human rights has warned that Blair & Co's education reform plans could clash with human rights laws:

    A report from the committee, published yesterday, warned that creating independent institutions outside the normal framework of maintained state schools could "undermine" the ability of local authorities to fulfil their legal duty to provide a school place for all children. The report also stated that proposals to give trust schools powers to vary the curriculum could interfere with rights against indoctrination, while reforms preventing local authorities from forcing trust schools to give places to individual children could also breach the human rights act.
