This year’s SEA AGM and Annual Conference is on Saturday 22nd June at the Wesley Hotel, Euston Street – just beside Euston Station. The AGM will begin at 10.00 and the conference at 11.00.
We are delighted that our President, Professor Selina Todd will be speaking at the conference. We will also be joined by Lyn Brown MP from the Treasury front bench team. Lyn will be looking at the issues around child poverty, challenging us to think about its effects on education and what education can contribute to reducing it. Other speakers will be announced soon.
The other main focus of the conference will be the curriculum and its assessment. The government, in alliance with Ofsted and its favoured academy trusts, is more and more forcing its narrow vision for the curriculum on schools. We urgently need a Labour response.
The debate on assessment will be led by Terry Wrigley of Northumbria University who is a leading specialist in curriculum and assessment issues from a radical perspective.
