“Our education system is no longer fit for the 21stCentury. Political intervention has ensured that it has suffered from constant change, without the framework of a long-term strategic plan and ambition to guide its evolution. I am delighted to support FED’s ambitions to convene a collective approach to seeking to ensure that we prepare our children, consistently and fairly, for their futures
