All the way from America

Another speaker has been confirmed (flights permitting):

  • Laura McInerney, education blogger and researcher (@Miss_McInerney)will be speaking (flights permitting).
    Here is her bio: ‘I taught in in East London for the past six years and am now completing a Fulbright sponsored Phd in Education Policy Analysis at the University of Missouri.
    My research involves looking at what can be learned from the sometimes successful & sometimes disastrous implementation of ‘Charter’ Schools in various US states. [Charters are very similar to ‘free’ schools]. From this my aim is to advocate for a better UK Free School & Academies system.
    Alongside studying I write for  LKMCo, a think-and-action tank and provide research support to their work improving education services for young people. Through LKMCo I published a booklet  “The Six Predictable Failures of Free Schools…And How To Avoid Them” and I have also written for The Times Education, The New Statesman, CERP and Optimus Education. I also contributed a chapter to the Oxford Handbook of Happiness.
