Of course we want young people to make the most of their lives through a well-rounded education, but under Corbyn's plan I worry this will not be the case. Instead, if a National Education Service is implemented, the reality is society will be going at the speed of the slowest, and this is in nobody's interest.
At VSO, we recognise that technology is no magic bullet solution but can empower teachers to deliver their lessons effectively. Unlocking Talent is part of a broad strategy for improving education in Malawi that is also increasing the number of teachers trained in using child-centred teaching methods.
What do you think the purpose of education is? If you agree things need to change, what will you do about it? Whether you're a headteacher or a class teacher, at any stage of education, whether you're a parent, or a pupil, you have the power to make a difference in the small daily deliberate actions you take.
I may be pessimistic, I may be wrong but the Durham Union Society should be shamed for what has happened. They must reflect on their past decisions and reconsider their future ones if they to be viewed as a respected debating society and not as group who wish merely to offend.

The Liberal Democrats fought tooth and nail to deliver this in Coalition because we want every child to have the best possible start in life and be able to concentrate in class. All the evidence shows that a healthy meal helps with that. Instead of further investing in our children, the Tories are turning up at the school gate and stealing their lunch money. My message to the Prime Minister is this - give us a guarantee that it is safe, not unsourced quotes. You say you are proud of this Lib Dem policy - I am too. But until you say it is safe, we will keep working, fighting and campaigning for this policy.
Science does not claim to have all the answers. Nor is it just about stars and labs and planets and things that seem far away from us or far removed from our daily lives: it's also about animal behaviours and how our brain works and how we are connected to the planet and whether or not our species will survive climate change.
It's 15 years since the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were agreed which sought to 'spare no effort' in eradicating global poverty and inequality.
