“ The reforms I set out here are of vital importance. They are vital to our economy – equipping young people with the skills employers need and the ability to go on learning throughout their lives. They are vital for social justice – giving us the chance to break forever the historic link between social background, educational achievement and life chances that have dogged us as a nation. And most of all they are vital to each and every individual young person, whatever their needs and whatever their aspirations.”
