    So what does this mean - do IT Support staff get transferred over to a managed provider now that the councils have overturned the government's decision?

    After the spectacular failures of said managed service providers, let's hope not.

    I think schools would be obliged to offload their IT staff if it meant they can do wonderful, sometimes disastrous, new things to their schools.

    I think I'm going to go and lie down in a darkened room, it seemed to help last time.

    The Councils won on the basis that Consultation had not taken place so now it is likely there will be a year or so of Consultation and then the Schools will not be built.

    How much has it cost to take the government to court over this?

    Two salient points from that article:

    The Department for Education issued a robust defence to the decision. A spokesman said: "On the substantive points he [the judge] concluded that it was a rational decision and that the authorities involved had no expectation of being allowed to proceed with their projects."
    "The judge set out, however, that "the final decision on any project still rests with him and…. No one should gain false hope from this decision."
