Co-op Values in Schools

The Co-operative Party set out to publish policy documents on all the major subjects at the beginning of the year- and education is in there. Always an expensive and controversial subject in politics. Should you wish to read a summary - it's here

There is also "Co-operative values make a difference: in the curriculum and governance of schools" was originally published in September by The Co-operative College. Click here to access the pdf version. Written by Mervyn Wilson and Cliff Mills, foreword by Ed Balls MP, and an introduction by Peter Marks, CEO of The Co-operative. Lots of pictures to break up the text. Co-operative trusts for schools? I think a lot of people would buy into that.
