Letter: Islington Authority

Sir: Islington has always been too small an authority to run education properly: we were caught in the fall-out from the abolition of the Inner London Education Authority ("D-minus for schools in London N1", 19 May). Privatising it will do nothing to help education in the borough. The Government needs to reorganise London's education into fewer, larger authorities that can afford to maintain the specialist resources that are needed in inner London, and that cut across borough boundaries that mean little to most people.
