Teach First comments on Justine Greening’s speech at Conservative Party Conference

In response to the speech given by the Rt Hon Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for Education at Conservative Party Conference 2016, Brett Wigdortz, founder and CEO of education charity Teach First, said:

“Every child should have access to an outstanding education, so we are delighted to hear Justine Greening, Secretary of State for Education commit to investing in communities that for too long have been left behind. I am proud that Teach First is already working with many schools in these Opportunity Areas and look forward to working with Government to unlock the potential of more young people currently not getting the education they deserve. We know from experience, most notably in London, that when schools, businesses and local communities, work together collaboratively, supported by Government, young people’s life chances can be transformed.”
