The newly published conference issue of Education Politics explores the concept of the National Education Service from many angles. It sets how SEA thinks the principles of the NES need to be developed across all sectors of education. It includes articles by Kevin Courtney and Melissa Benn and ranges from the structure of education to the issues around the mental health of young people that are currently so concerning. It also visits New Zealand to see what the new Labour government there is doing to transform education.
You can access this issue of Education Politics here: Education Politics Sept 2018.
