Learning money matters

In March 2006 the Financial Services Authority (FSA) launched the National Strategy for Financial Capability. The strategy sets out a seven-point programme, which includes a school programme. A central part of the work in schools will be the Learning Money Matters initiative, which will be delivered by Personal Finance Education Group (pfeg). Learning Money Matters will provide help, support and advice for schools. It will also ensure that teachers feel confident and competent in their ability to deliver personal finance education (PFE).

Academies risk increasing social segregation

Gordon Brown and David Cameron are being urged not to extend the number of Academies and Trust schools without making their admissions procedures fairer. New research, published by the Institute for Public Policy Research (ippr) today (Fri), shows that secondary schools which are their own admission authorities are much less representative of their local area. ippr argues that schools have no reason to be their own admissions authorities, other than to select students by ability or socio-economic background.
