Russell Group comment on Education White Paper

Commenting on the Education White Paper, Dr Wendy Piatt, Director General of the Russell Group of universities, said:

“We welcome the Government’s commitment to raising educational attainment in schools in England.  This is by far the most important factor in the likelihood of a student going to a leading university. Success in improving academic achievement will help us more than any other measure to increase the number of students from low income backgrounds in our universities.” More information here.
