The Parents, The Politician and the Carpetbagger follows parents and teachers from Downhills School as they try to stop Education secretary, Michael Gove, forcing their school to become part of the Harris academy chain.

The film challenges Department of Education claims that academies out perform non-academies, which they don't, and reveals how local authorities are being bullied into serving up schools for forced academisation, just to keep the Minister sweet.
