In essence I'm saying that we can't offer the middle classes any more opportunity to seek refuge in segregated schools. This is because among even the most liberal of us, there are those who probably can't be trusted not to pounce on it. Instead it might be an idea to try and make comprehensive schools into places they won't dessert en masse given half the chance.
This month, the slowdown in the oil and gas industry not only shook up the financial markets, but also had a knock on effect on the enrolment at international schools around the world.
It isn't just the time to limit the radicalisation of the Islam Faith but it is also time to stop the radicalization of our own views. Fine, religion has the potential to be toxic but so do we.
In our Conservative led, austerity Britain, young people's social needs simply aren't recognised or prioritised. Our education system has become detri...
The problem for Jay is that the government of his nation want to create a set of tests for four year olds that will allocate him to a particular level on the basis of his ability to sit with an adult and demonstrate to them that he can count objects and sound out letters and words presented to him on an iPad
For me, school is a significant milestone and another one of those doses of reality that pop up once in a while to remind you that life isn't quite straight forward - like birthdays, Christmas and important hospital appointments.
'Project Fear' claimed if we voted to leave the EU our universities would face financial ruin. We were told academics would flee the UK. We were told UK students would no longer be able to study abroad. False, false, false.
As our children are going back to school, a lot of them starting Big School for the first time, I wanted to share with you something that I don't hear mentioned that much, namely transition regression.
Most people who want more grammar schools admit that less academically able children would be better off in a comprehensive system... Do people back grammar schools because they think their own child is smart enough to get into one? The answer seems to be yes.
Taking the first step onto the career ladder is one of the most challenging things we will ever do. Whether they've just left school, college or uni...
By stepping through the doorway of home education to new connections and communities both virtual and in real life, we find a grassroots movement that will lead the way to revolutionising education as we know it. And believe me, it's already happening.
It was all going so... well... it was 'going' in any event. The post-Brexit political meltdown saw senior MPs going to the backbenches in their droves, including David Cameron who has now quit as an MP. The new PM's Machiavellian cabinet reshuffle seemed like a pretty good start, taking into account the rather large poisoned chalice on offer.
The Women and Equalities Committee has this week published its third report since its establishment, on the issue of sexual harassment and sexual violence in schools. According to the research statistics, this is our widest-reaching report yet: a 2015 Girlguiding UK study found that 75% of girls and young women said anxiety about potentially experiencing sexual harassment affects their lives in some way.
I am just one girl writing this, but I am one girl representing thousands, who urgently want to see the end of sexual harassment in schools.
Hawa is going back to school this week. Her uniform is clean and her hair neatly braided. The excitement of the new term is felt far and wide as laughter, giggles and singing fills the school campus, when classes break for recess. "I'm so happy to be back in school and to see my friends," she says with a big grin.
Theresa May wants to return to an outdated system where children are placed in segregated schools depending on their exam results. And the devil take the rest. She tries to hide her divisive approach by cloaking it in warm words, but however she dresses it up, this is still selection. Still winners and many more losers. Still a minority of schools classed as 'good' and the vast majority publicly branded as 'bad'.
