The Mayor’s Education Inquiry – First Report

The Mayor’s Education Inquiry, which will run until September 2012, will explore the critical challenges facing London’s primary and secondary schools.The Mayor’s Education Inquiry, which will run until September 2012, will explore the critical challenges facing London’s primary and secondary schools.

It will examine key challenges for education in London and make recommendations for practical action with key partners including the boroughs, schools and policy-makers. Although GCSE results are improving, nearly four in 10 of London’s school children do not achieve the level needed for good life chances.

The Mayor is concerned that some schools are lowering their expectations of pupils, and not pushing children in core subjects such as Maths and English. He announced that he was establishing a new education inquiry on 10 November 2011.

The first report is available here to download.
