If I were Secretary of State for Education...

What would you do if you were Secretary of State for Education? Some leading international educationalists have shared their ‘mini manifestos’.

All of the ‘mini manifestos’ you read in this publication were written in that rather unreal time before the result of the general election was known, and when any outcome seemed possible. Everyone believed (perhaps for the last time) that the pollsters were right, and that we were heading for a hung Parliament... It was, of course, not to be.

The 41 authors have come up with a wonderful blend of the inspired, the considered, the funny, the impossible, the very possible, the hugely expensive and the cost-free.
