LSS: Faith in school governance - Trojan horse or open goal?

Description: John Adams argues that the ‘Trojan horse’ scandal in Birmingham’s schools exposed fundamental problems in both faith schools and school governance.

In an academic career of more than 30 years, John has taught, researched and examined in economics in universities in the UK and overseas, and has written and lectured extensively on a variety of subjects in economics, staff development and governance. He has authored more than 90 books, articles, reports and seminar papers.

John was the first chair of the newly-formed National Governors’ Association; before that he was the chair of the National Association of School Governors. In November 2006, he was elected the first vice president of the NGA.

In 2002 John was part of a ministerial delegation to the Russian Parliament to advise on the introduction of school governing bodies throughout the Russian Federation, and in 2004 undertook a lecture tour to South Africa under the aegis of the University of Pretoria, to share experience of governance and good practice from the UK.
