Mr. Chris Patten

The proposals for the reform of school government set out in chapter 9 of "Better Schools" (Cmnd. 9469) are aimed at re-invigorating governing bodies as a force for good in the life of individual schools. As announced in the Gracious Speech, the necessary legislation will be introduced this Session.
