Cultural education a human right, Maggie Atkinson tells teachers

Cultural Education is a human right says Professor Maggie Atkinson, as she challenges mayoral candidates to address gaps between rich and poor

On 13 October, our Chair Professor Maggie Atkinson delivered a blistering key note speech at a conference for London teachers at Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre, Southwark.

In her first public speech as Chair of A New Direction, she emphatically called access to a cultural education a human right, as observed by Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and in doing so highlighted the challenges and opportunities London faces in ensuring all young Londoners are able to exercise this right.
