Access to education in Knowsley.

I was interviewed by the Liverpool Echo about the lack of Higher Education provision in my home town of Knowsley. You can read the article here.

When I was studying for my Masters, I remember having quite the exchange with a local Councillor about the state of education in my home borough of Knowsley. This was during a time when England was transitioning into a new “metro region” form of Governance that encouraged us to think broader about opportunity, and look outside of our home towns to the wider region. However, transportation infrastructure was not in place at the time to make this happen, so when schools stopped offering A-Levels (the precursor to a bachelors degree) in my home town, a lot of students were left feeling abandoned and as though their local government had no hopes for them.

This week, I was asked for my thoughts on this by the Liverpool Echo, and I was happy to share. I was also happy that they think I’m younger than I actually am.
