Melissa Benn at the Arts Centre

On the battle for Britainís education - who are the winners and who the losers in current plans for state education?
Arts Centre
Tuesday 08 May 2012
Melissa Benn Arts Centre Swindon
Why do some schools struggle and others succeed?  In relation to education, do local authorities have any say? Can a genuine academic and social mix work in the same classroom?
What are the cases for, or against, private education, free schools, and comprehensives?
Broadcaster, writer for the Guardian and Cosmopolitan, co-founder of the Local Schools Network, and daughter of former MP and Cabinet Minister Tony and the late champion for comprehensive education Caroline, Melissa Benn, author of School Wars, has forthright views on the possibilities of good quality universal education as the embodiment of common citizenship and a right and good thing for all.
Doors: 8pm
Admission: £7, Concessions £6, Multi Book £6
