Dear friends,

 

I've been delighted by the response to my pamphlet, ‘Robbins Rebooted’, where I set out the terms for a 21st Century debate on the future of higher education. Below is a short selection of responses so far from higher education stakeholders.

 

 

Dear friends,

 

Brilliant news, the monthly figures from the Office of National Statistics show that unemployment has fallen again in Hodge Hill.

 

The number of unemployed claimants in the constituency of Birmingham, Hodge Hill in June 2014 was 5,224. 

 

That's a 155 lower than in May 2014 and a whopping 1296 lower than in June 2013.

 

 

Dear friends,

 

You can see my statement on the the release of the Clarke report earlier today below:

 

"When I was first alerted to problems at Park View, before anyone had heard of Trojan Horse, I called in Ofsted and made a promise that nothing would be swept under the carpet. We would get to the bottom of any problems and fix them.

 

 

Dear friends,

 

Yesterday Cllr Ansar Ali Khan and I met with hundreds of parents who have children at Park View. From that meeting emerged a five-point action plan to see this situation move forward, giving power back to parents.

 

This morning I met with the Secretary of State Michael Gove at the Department for Education and presented him with a copy of the five-point action plan. The text of the plan is below the photo.
