Towards a shared vision for school education in Birmingham: a Children’s Zone approach – local area-based partnerships between the schools, the local authority and the community
Our main speaker will be Professor Alan Dyson. Alan is co-author of a new book on Children’s Zones ‘Education, Disadvantage and Place: Making the Local Matter’. Also speaking will be our own Professor Richard Hatcher who will set out the Birmingham context, and Councillor Valerie Seabright who will give her response in a personal capacity. Valerie is Councillor for Kings Norton, a member of the Education Scrutiny Committee and Chair of Governors at an infant school. She was a teacher for 40 years, from Primary School to Teacher Education. You can read more about the case for a Children’s Zone approach in Birmingham here.
