Head's 'havoc' fearover reforms
NEW laws requiring students to remain in education until they are 17 could play havoc with rural transport provision, a headteacher has claimed.
Steve Hillier (pictured) head teacher of the Gryphon School, has urged parents to lobby their Member of Parliament over the problems he believes having students remain in education or training until they are 17 may cause.
He said: "The Government guidelines are confusing. For people living in cities there are plenty of transport opportunities to help students staying on in education to get around. There just isn't this capacity in the countryside.
"There is no alternative to the school bus, and no public service."
