Today I met with two of my constituents, year 9 students Ella Foster and Ella Henry, from Carlton Le Willows Academy. They were part of the Send My Friend to School campaign.
They were representing 300,000+ students who have taken part in the campaign - calling on the UK Government to increase its investment in the power of education.
I believe that Britain has a strong role in delivering learning for all. Education should be at the heart of the UK's foreign and development policy.
