For over 60 years FORUM: for comprehensive education has been the pre-eminent focal point for topical and informed analysis – very often highly forthright and critical – of all aspects of United Kingdom government policy as it influences the education of children from primary through to higher education.

FORUM vigorously campaigns for the universal provision of state-provided education, and seeks to identify and expose all attempts to overturn the gains of the past years. Every teacher, headteacher, administrator, parent, or governor should read this exciting publication.
