Politics and Education; An uneasy Couple?

"Having spent most of my working life in either politics or education, I sometimes see the two as inextricably linked. I know that this is a view that wouldn’t be shared by some others and the campaign to ‘take politics out of education’ has probably grown in strength over recent years.

Whilst I would defend a strong relationship between the two, I feel equally strongly that the boundaries between the world of politics and schools are poorly defined and damage both areas of public life. The talk will consider the relationship between politics and schools and explore what a new settlement might look like."
