The Education Committee questions Nick Gibb MP, Minister for School Standards, on issues relating to his brief, which includes the curriculum and assessment, teacher recruitment and retention and school accountability.
Tuesday 22 May in Committee Room 15, Committee Corridor, Palace of Westminster
- Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards
Purpose of the session
The session is likely to focus on what the Government is doing to promote social justice and narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged and other pupils. The Committee is also likely to raise the effect of changes to the curriculum with the Minister.
Members may also use the session to question the Minister on the Government’s approach to grammar schools, following the announcement last week of extra funding for the expansion of selective schools.
