"It’s time to move the lazy caricatures of independent versus state education, and instead focus on what we have in common – children, teachers and leadership. In your sector you can those in the state sector to be bolder in their leadership, so that we reject how parochial the UK education system is and instead set a new tone of ambition. After all, the world is changing fast and automation will wipe out jobs at many levels. That’s why we should be talking about the kind of young people we wish to develop, the kind of curriculum they deserve, and the types of teachers and leaders that will be in demand. So: let’s be bolder in our vision, in our collaborative approach to shaping the future of education, and let’s do what our young people deserve." - General Secretary, Association of School and College Leaders.
