SEA Statement on COVID-19 Situation

The SEA is concerned that the Conservative Government are prioritising the economy over public health. Instead of planning for and implementing measures to limit the spread of the disease – such as closing schools, universities etc – as other countries have done, the Tories are choosing to put the economy before public safety.

SEA AGM 2019

The SEA AGM saw lively debate around two areas that have seen significant shifts in policy from Labour in recent months. Lyn Brown MP and Professor Selina Todd addressed issues around social justice and equality – and why social mobility is not enough. This echoed the recent announcements by Jeremy Corbyn. Our debate focussed around the implications of this change for education policy, especially around the issues of selection and private education.
