Publication of the Independent Review of Education welcomed
Equality Commission statement
We welcome the publication of the Independent Review of Education. It will be important that the Department for Education and any future Ministers give full consideration to how proposals can advance equality of opportunity for those from across the full range of equality grounds.
An improved education system should aim to better address inequalities in attainment and access across the range of equality grounds; tackle prejudice-based bullying and challenge stereotypes; advance a shared society; and further mainstream equality across the delivery of education and in teacher development.
