Professor Maggie Atkinson starts blog series for TES
Our Chair, Professor Maggie Atkinson was asked to be a regular contributor on creativity, arts and cultural education for the TES
Maggie has served as England’s second Children’s Commissioner, with a statutory duty to promote and protect the rights of the child. After a 36 year career working with and for children and young people, she is a fearless defender of their entitlement to be valued and heard as young citizens - accessing what society has to offer and in turn making positive contributions to it as they grow up to be adults.
Her blogs for the TES focus on policy developments and themes relating to the rights of all children and young people in the context of our work around the arts and cultural education.
