We have world class universities, brilliant teachers and talented students.
But by putting a price tag on education, running schools as businesses and making them exam factories we are wasting children’s potential and stifling creativity.
We can free education from these shackles if we are bold and ambitious.
– Scrap university tuition fees.
– Promote a comprehensive system of local schools offering mixed ability teaching staffed by qualified teachers.
– Bring Academies and Free Schools into the Local Authority system.
