Jeremy Corbyn’s 2016 conference address – 4: Education
The economy of the future depends on the investment we make today in infrastructure, skills, and schools.
I’m delighted that Lucy Powell is our new shadow Education Secretary. She has already set out how the education of every child and the quality of every school counts.
Every school should be accountable to local government.
We should not bring selection.
We have aspirations for all children, not just a few.
We need to be investing in our young people – not cutting student numbers. Giving young people real hope and real opportunity.
