A free conference for parents, governors and teachers, sponsored by the Centre for Educational Research & Development. University of Lincoln
No booking required
Education reforms nationally and locally are making huge changes to schooling in Lincolnshire. What is driving these changes? Are the arguments educational or economic? What’s in it for the County’s children?
If you don’t know the answer to these questions…if you want to engage in serious, open debate about the future of the County’s schools… then this event is for you.
The questions are important to get right – the answers are too important to get wrong.
