Seven education quangos cut, nine face uncertain future
Seven quangos attached to the Department for Education will disappear under the reforms, while the future of another nine bodies remains uncertain.
The highest-profile casualty will be the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency, which had been tasked with developing the National Curriculum. The body was an early target for the Tories. David Cameron picked it out in 2009 as an example of an organisation making political decisions.
Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, has since announced plans to alter history and English teaching in state schools.
The School Food Trust, set up by Labour to encourage healthy eating after Jamie Oliver's campaign, will be turned into a charity. It will still advise councils and suppliers.
The board of governors of Teachers TV, which broadcasts online, will be abolished.
