Letter: Beverley MP fought for good schools

Have your say

In the heat of the row over academies, credit should go to Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart for persuading ministers to adopt a sensible compromise.

Although he is a Government MP, he has consistently argued that good schools doing a good job under local authority control should be allowed to get on with the job and was even quoted at Prime Minister’s Questions by Jeremy Corbyn for doing so.

Graham, a former chairman of the Education Select Committee has a continuing interest in education and it is refreshing to see a dedicated MP prepared to stand up for what he believes is right and get things changed if they need changing, not just parroting a party line.
