Not an IT specific article, but I thought it was relevant. Especially regarding BSF and also Academies.
An inquiry ordered by the schools secretary, Ed Balls, into the impact of the commercial world on children is to investigate the government's own policies of encouraging schools to link up to businesses and setting up sponsored academies.
David Buckingham, a professor at the Institute of Education, University of London and a leading authority on children and the media, said that the "privatisation" of schools could be affecting children's education.
