Having taken a cool, long look at the facts, Ian Mikado School voted not to become an Academy. This is local democracy in action, and I entirely welcome their decision. The late Ian Mikado, who represented this area in Parliament for over twenty years, and after whom this school is named, would undoubtedly have approved as well. Clearly a majority of people in Tower Hamlets want all our schools to remain in the hands of our Local Authority.
