THE FOUNDER of a flagship free school in Bradford has been jailed for five years for defrauding the Department for Education of thousands of pounds from government grants.

Sajid Hussain Raza, 43, was jailed at Leeds Crown Court with former academy staff members Daud Khan and Shabana Hussain, who were sentenced to 14 months and six months respectively.

The trio were convicted in August of making payments into their own bank accounts from grants given to help set up the Kings Science Academy in Bradford in 2011.

One Response to Five years’ jail for corrupt head of Bradford free school praised by David Cameron

  1. Tom Roberts says:

    All these so-called “free schools” and the religion-based schools should be shut down. The French have it right – religion has no place in the education system of a secular country.
    Many of these “new-age” religious schools of course were started in the Blair era – knowing how evil this individual was in government, it was probably his deliberate intention to destabilise society, like his open-door immigration policy.
    Of course the Tory idiot Camoron ( mis-spelling intentional ) that followed him carried on with it, basically because he was just a clueless clown – a puppet on the corporate string.
    I doubt if anyone is surpised at this prosecution – no doubt public money ( yes, our taxpayer’s money ) is still being misappropriated in various ways by similar people ‘administrating’ some of these schools.
