Democratisation: Defend and Extend Democratic Education Policy

We need to be clear that realistically no other progressive reforms can be achieved nationally without simultaneously reversing the structural changes made since the Education Act was passed in 1988, and a complete programme of nationalisation and democratisation is implemented in schools, colleges, universities, central service providers and local authorities.  It will be a massive undertaking for an incoming Labour Government and in order to achieve it the Labour Party and all those who want to see a truly comprehensive national education system need to work to change the accepted narrative of the last 30 years.
