Education Policy at the Party Conferences



Mike Baker explores how Conservative and Liberal Democrat philosophy is shaping the coalition government policy on education, in a video on the latest education issues.

Mike speaks to Conservative MP, Graham Stuart, about the 'supply side revolution' - the Conservative plan to drive up school standards through greater choice and competition.

The potential divides within the coalition government, based on the differences between Liberal Democrat and Conservative policies, are also assessed.

Finally, Liberal Democrat councillor, Peter Downes, who criticised plans for free schools and academies during the 2010 Lib Dem party conference, explains his views.
