What Would a Socially Just Education System Look Like?

About this event

As debate about the future of education rages all around us, not enough is being said about the core failing of English education: rank inequality.  In this special online meeting, held ahead of the party conference season, and drawing on a wide range of political perspectives,  we ask ‘What Would A Socially Just Education System Look Like?”

Suggested donation for tickets £3.50 to support Comprehensive Future's campaign for fair admissions and an end to the 11-plus.
