“As a way to win votes, all parties will lead us all to believe that every single child in this country matters and deserves an education,” said education expert Gulam Dabhad. “They will tell us about school successes under their governance and a promise that will make real progress.”

Education is a vitally important investment in UK’s economic competitiveness, in its communities, and in its people. We can’t disregard the middle class economy that needs to be aligned for the 21st Century. We have to invest in our nation, our future and show commitment to the long term growth of our economy. Undoubtedly, businesses generate jobs, good new jobs for our workers to fill. Future governments need to cut inefficient spending and reforming our broken tax code to make sure everyone pays their fair share which will pave the way for a more sustainable fiscal path.
