Live event catch up – Comprehensive school education: policy mistake, lost ideal or model for the future?

On Wednesday 21 September 2011 the Leicester Exchanges live debate tackled the important and divisive theme of Comprehensive School Education.  The lively event was held at The Court Room, Glaziers Hall, in front of a live audience and featured a panel of leading thought-leaders, campaigners, practitioners and academics:
