Cash for School Admissions – Help Wanted!

We’ve received the following email from the BBC.

“Hi,

Sorry to bother you.

I work for the BBC’s Today programme and we were wondering if you’d be able to help us.

There was a story in the news yesterday (11 March 2008) that some schools were breaking the rules when it came to admissions policy.

According to the government the schools were allegedly asking parents banned questions about their marital status or financial background, and some were even asking for financial donations to the school.

As your blog is read by parents and teachers we thought it would be a good place to try and find people who might have experienced this and get them on the programme to tell us their story.

So we’d like to track down anyone who has had experience of this type of behaviour and is prepared to discuss it with one of our reporters.

We guarantee that all communication will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Would you be prepared to put up a blog post asking any of your readers with knowledge of this type of behaviour to get in touch with us?

They can get in touch by emailing .uk (ideally with ‘schools’ in the subject header).

We’ll try and get back to anyone today.

You can read more about the story here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/7289642.stm

Thanks for your help”
