A message from Bukky Yusuf on joining the FED:
“2020 has provided a catalyst and real opportunity for meaningful change. I firmly believe that now is the time to make educational changes that moves away from constant measuring and checking currently in place. As part of FED, I am keen to share my experiences and insights of education as part of discussions within a neutral forum that helps to create long term, strategic plans to reshape the future of education and employment in England.
