Nick Clegg signals free schools 'split'

The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has accused his Conservative coalition partners of failing to enforce basic standards of education in Free Schools in England.

He wants the schools to employ qualified teachers and follow the national curriculum.

Mr Clegg said his views on Education Secretary Michael Gove's flagship scheme did not mean the coalition was in crisis.
