Robert Halfon: 'We must face facts about GCSEs'
In a supporting statement, Mr Halfon emphasised the need to help disadvantaged pupils who are 19 months behind their peers at GCSE, with some groups "particularly vulnerable".
He added: "If re-elected as chair, I will continue to work with colleagues to champion skills, social justice, standards, and support for the teaching profession. These should be the interlocking foundations of the government’s education programme."
Mr Halfon was first elected to the committee chair in 2017, having served as skills minister prior to that.
And he has argued against the "cliff-edge" nature of the reformed GCSE qualifications.
