As schools “re-opened” on June 1, Private Education Policy Forum recorded its inaugural podcast, hosted by education journalist and co-founder Jess Staufenberg.
Discussing the impact of coronavirus across a range of issues were:
- Will Millard – head of engagement at the Centre for Education & Youth, a ‘think and action-tank’ which seeks to help children make a fulfilling transition into adulthood
- Dr Wanda Wyporska – executive director at The Equality Trust, a national charity that campaigns to reduce socio and economic inequality
- Dr Nuala Burgess, chair of Comprehensive Future which campaigns to end the 11-plus, and postdoc fellow, King’s College, London
- Melissa Benn – writer, campaigner and co-founder of Private School Policy Reform whose latest book argues for the introduction of a ‘National Education Service’
