FSM and the politics of education

Short one- in three pictures this is why we should stop talking about immigration and start talking about educational equity. Growth in UKIP support maps on to the demographic changes recently reported by Education Data Lab’s analysis of FSM eligibility (which acts an indicator of poverty in general but also a predictor of low educational outcomes, currently). It also reveals that this has little to do with growth in population. Obviously demographic change is complex but this is just another piece of evidence to suggest that political parties need to focus on educational outcomes if they want to change the direction of political debate in this country.
