Education for all: the contradictions and challenges

Published on: Sunday 10 March 2013

On 7 March 2013, ESU members joined over two hundred University of Bedfordshire personnel and guests for the first event in the Vice Chancellor’s Public Policy lecture series, addressed by the Rt Hon David Blunkett MP.

Following  a commanding review of past education policies, in which he had played a significant role when in government, the speaker cast a critical eye over the developments which have taken place under the present coalition including the various attempts made to reform the schools’ examination system.

He remains very active in many associated fields, and recently founded the Future For Youth Foundation, a new charity that will create meaningful, supported eight-month volunteering and social action placements for young people out of work, education or training.
