One of the key challenges in education is how to incorporate modern technology into the classroom, without loss to the aesthetics or the fundamentals of good order.
Labour promises to invest billions into a “national education service”
Labour’s manifesto has outlined plans to inject £25 billion into a national education service, which is expected to be funded from extra tax revenue.
According to the manifesto, “Labour will create a unified National Education Service (NES) for England to move towards a cradle-to-grave learning that is free at the point of use.”
It goes on to say that the NES will be built on the principle that “Every Child- and Adult - Matters”.
The party says that it will scrap tuition fees in England, reintroduce maintenance allowances, and limit class sizes.
Labour has also labelled the Conservative’s plan to roll out grammar schools a “vanity project” and state that Labour “will not waste money on inefficient free schools”.
Further promises by the party include introducing free school meals for all primary school children; abandoning plans to reintroduce baseline assessments; and extending schools-based counselling to improve children’s mental health.
The Conservative Party has, however, labelled the manifesto “nonsensical”.
