The purpose of the Commission is to change the debate about education. The Commission is politically independent. Its members represent leading thinkers and practitioners in education, employers and unions.
The current system lets down pupils, parents and teachers. We need a system which will enable today’s children to flourish as full citizens of the future. Although we can not predict the future, we know it will be very different from the past. We have to prepare children for an unknowable but exciting future.
The focus of the Commission is not on reforming today’s system. It is about creating the future perfect system. Our remit focuses on schools in England to the age of 18, and will include early years.
The Commission will be looking at evidence of best practices and innovative practices from around the world, in collaboration with our research partner Warwick University. If you would like to join the debate, please contact us. We want to hear your voice.
