Educational investment & improvements in the North of England

June 8, 2019

This week on the Education Select Committee, we spoke with leaders from the Northern Powerhouse Partnership about educational investment and improvements in the North of England. I particularly asked them about a recent report they've submitted that picked out schools in Mansfield as well as the North and recommended focused intervention to improve life chances.


Areas like Greater Manchester, with their Combined Mayoral Authority that has lots of devolved powers and much clearer leadership, are showing what can be done with the better local structures. I asked the panel how the suggest we do that in the East Midlands when we have so many different Councils, all with competing priorities, meaning that we struggle to bring long term plans together.
