Opposition Day — Review of 14-19 Education — 17 Jun 2015 at 15:49
The majority of MPs voted against a cross-party review of 14-19 education to full advantage of the increase in the participation age to 18.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- notes that improving education is imperative for the future economic growth of this country, that gains in productivity play an instrumental role in achieving high growth and better living standards, and that in order to prevent a recurrence of the deficiencies in the previous Government’s strategy for 14-19 education, the Government should initiate a cross-party review of 14-19 education, as recommended by the Confederation of British Industry, to cover exams, educational institutions and the curriculum in order to take full advantage of the increase in the participation age to 18.
