Hull and East Riding Humanist Group

A social group for humanists, atheists, secularists, sceptics and agnostics

Our July 2019 meeting was a talk by Dr Jackie Lukes who is a long time contributor to the national debate on education through her work at the University of Hull, contributions to parliamentary consultations on education and work with the Socialist Education Association. Jackie spoke to the group on faith schools ten years ago in September 2009. This time she talked about the thinking behind the creation of a National Education Service, something that is a current Labour Party manifesto commitment. Is this an opportunity to create a cradle to grave education service free at the point of delivery similar to the NHS?
