A World Class Education System
We can support parents and give all London’s children the best possible start in life.
- A good school place of choice for every child, taking over responsibility from central government for London’s school places and quality, appointing a London Schools Commissioner to lead improvements
- Caroline will co-ordinate the chaotic pattern of school places across borough boundaries and get London’s councils to work together to deliver more choice for parents
- We will use the London Plan to ensure that more schools are delivered as part of redevelopment and regeneration schemes
- We will work with boroughs to expand youth facilities
- Caroline will protect the current travel and fare concessions for children, young people and students
- Caroline will support the extension of the right to vote in all future London elections to 16 year olds
