PARENTAL CHOICE IN EDUCATION
One of the points of debate in educational policy is the tension between equity and parental choice.
In this lecture, three parents with experiences in the Government, Independent and Catholic schools system will share their insights on this vexed topic. Speakers will also examine ideas around what parental engagement means and how it intersects with choice in education.
