A new issue of Forum


A new issue of Forum has just been published. It contains a series of articles about Labour’s plans for a National Education Service. It goes without saying that in general  Labour’s policy should be welcomed, but some of its post-16 proposals are more problematic. In one of the contributions, Patrick Ainley and myself explain why we don’t need another attempt at constructing a ‘vocational alternative’ to academic qualifications and why Labour are wrong to back the Tories T-Levels. Instead, we need a good ‘general education’ for everybody.


Unless you are a subscriber you’ll have to purchase the articles, but there have been previous posts on this site that summarise our argument.
