I looked in detail in an earlier post at what the Conservative manifesto said about education (particularly secondary). I thought I would compare and contrast the three main English parties and their education commitments from their manifesto’s. I’ve tried to be as non-judgemental as possible and to be honest there are parts of each party’s manifesto I like and would like to see adopted.
I’ve tried to look at 4 specific areas as well as ‘others’ to encompass anything that stood out but wasn’t easily categorised under these four headings.
Area 1 – School Funding
Area 2 – Recruitment and Retention
Area 3 – Accountability and provision
Let me know what your thoughts are – which of the three do you prefer and why? What would you have liked to see but haven’t? All comments welcomed!
