The ‘Trojan Horse’ affair has prompted important debates around the local management of schools, so-called ‘British values’, religious education and how schools can best serve diverse communities.
This is one of a series of high profile public meetings with a built-in question time, organised during the 2015 General Election campaign. The Aston Debates will feature high-profile guest speakers, drawn from politics, business, academia and civil society, addressing issues likely to feature prominently during the campaign. The aim? To be informative, provocative and to ‘cut through the spin’.
Professor Stephen Gorard - Professor of Education and Public Policy, Durham University
Chris Keates - General Secretary of the National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers
Richy Thompson - Campaigns Officer (Faith Schools and Education), British Humanist Association
The debate will be facilitated by community activist and political radio presenter Charmaine Burton, a former Aston University student.
