Click the first link below to hear the Big Ideas broadcast of our Reform Agenda Series event to launch our report Who’s Afraid of a Public School? on 11 March 2014.

David Hetherington is in conversation with the authors of the report, Verity Firth and Rebecca Huntley.

In the current education climate, parents feel pressured to send their children to private schools. A report on community attitudes explores the anxiety of school choice and the real and imagined evidence on which it is based. The authors argue that parents should consider the social benefit of sending their children to the local public school.
