Coronavirus: LGA statement on schools reopening plans
One hundred and fifty English local authorities and all authorities in Wales have the strategic lead for education of children and young people. They have a legal duty to ensure that every child fulfils his or her educational potential.
In England and Wales are councils which have responsibility for the education system within their jurisdiction.
In England there are 152 LEAs and in Wales the councils of the counties Act as the LEA for the schools in their jurisdictions (although, in Wales the term LEA is no longer used).
