Money matters

A national debate is needed on how to address the social and financial inequalities between further education colleges and sixth forms, according to a paper in a new collection of essays.

The paper by Geoff Stanton, author and researcher on further education and training, argues that school sixth forms are less socially inclusive than further education colleges and even universities. And yet, he says, FE colleges received less funding than either.

The collection of essays, Unfinished Business in Widening Participation: The end of the beginning, is published by the Learning and Skills Network in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Helena Kennedy Foundation.
