Sir Richard Lambert, Chair of the Fair Education Alliance, has released a statement in response to last week’s EU referendum:
“This vote represents, in part, the frustration of those who have not benefited from economic growth in recent decades. Real incomes and social mobility have stalled, and the correlation between economic deprivation, poor education and limited life chances remains much too high. The need to develop human capital has never been more obvious: education policy has to be front and centre of the next government’s strategy.”
