‘All in it together’

4334d8be-5dc1-47d3-bf8c-f5d6d1a30913Radicaled has posted critiques of Labour’s  polices for 14-19 year olds  to emphasise the continuity  with those of  Lord (Kenneth) Baker, whose support for a strong academic –vocational separation and in particular, for University Technology Colleges (UTCs) offering employment specialisms,  led to Tory tensions with Gove’s ‘grammar school education for all’ approach.



As has been argued, this does not make Baker’s programme any more progressive. Far from it.


In this recent picture from   Baker’s UTC newsletter, you’ll  see Tristram Hunt and Lord Adonis accompanying him at a recent UTC  event. A  sign of things to come?
