Councillors from Tory heartlands such as Hampshire and Oxfordshire have expressed dismay at plans to convert all schools to academies

The government is facing opposition from its supporters on Conservative-held county councils who are angry about plans to force all schools to become academies.

Leading Tory councillors across the country, dismayed by key elements of the education white paper outlined by the government last week, are calling on education secretary Nicky Morgan to rethink her policy of compulsory academisation for all schools.
