How (not) to run an education system, a PolicyBristol event

18 March 2015, 8.00 PM - 18 March 2015, 10.00 PM

Simon Burgess

The Kitchen (The Station), Silver Street , BS1 2AG

The discussion will focus on the main parties' approach to schools and teaching.  Why is education important? Should we just ditch the school league tables? Are Free Schools a good thing? How should we get the best teachers? Bring back grammar schools? Simon will talk about the latest research and what it says about these questions. 
The Bristol Politics Cafe seeks to encourage debate and discussion in the run up to the May 2015 election. 
In collaboration with PolicyBristol, the Bristol Politics Cafe has selected a range of experts from the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England to share their expertise and answer your questions on topics from media bias, to EU governance, to austerity. 
Join us 8pm-10pm on Wednesday evenings at The Station, Silver Street, Bristol BS1 2AG.
