Governors Needed: effective governance in schools

Today Radio Four broadcast a documentary on the challenges facing school governing bodies. Hopefully Governors Needed will be made available on the BBC’s listen again.

The programme highlighted the obstacles that can hinder effective governance and result in rubber-stamping. Many of the themes will be familiar to those charged with governance in other parts of the public and third sectors.

The documentary featured comments (and concerns) from the National Governors' Association. If you are a school governor, it will probably worth looking at the resources available on the NGA website.
