The latest edition of the SEA journal, Education Politics, is now available on this website. You can find it under the Resources/ Publications tab.
The main focus is the Select Committee inquiry on the Purpose of Education. It includes the SEA’s own submission and a selection of others.
There is also an update from Richy Thompson on work of the British Humanist Association and the Fair Admissions Campaign around faith school admissions. In particular it alerts us to the government’s attempts to restrict the right to take schools to the Adjudicator and so to protect schools from proper scrutiny of their admissions practices.
There is a response to Simon Burgess’s somewhat controversial article in the last EP on school accountability. Also Paul Martin writes about SEA’s plans to pull together the various strands of SEA policy as agreed by past conferences.
Finally, and importantly, this article contains details of the SEA elections for 2016-17. The closing date for nominations (including self nominations) is 30th April
