Liberal Democrat Education Policy Development and the role of LDEA

published by

3 May 2016

There has been concern within the party that we are not generally giving education policy enough priority. We in the LDEA are working on that.Early in February, jointly with the Lib Dem LGA group, we held a conference entitled 'Education for real life.'

It focused particularly on Schools as Exam Factories (led by Alex Kenny of the NUT), Wellbeing in Schools (led by Sarah Griffiths of Dulwich College), Character Education (led by Tom Harrison of Birmingham University) and Vocational Education for Life (led by Baroness Margaret Sharp). You can read more about the conference elsewhere in this booklet, but one of the outcomes will be an autumn policy motion for a change in nature and emphasis of our state education system.
