David Blunkett

Description

In this programme, Estelle Morris meets David Blunkett, her predecessor as education secretary, to reflect on his own education as well as education policies under New Labour.

David talks frankly about the obstacles he faced as a blind child growing up, and the battles he had to fight to get to where he is today.

Estelle quizzes him on some of his key initiatives under New Labour including his policy on inclusion and his development of citizenship classes, and we hear about the impact the strained relationship with the teaching unions had on him as education secretary.

We also hear why he chose to publicly speak out against Tony Blair for the first time over the Education White Paper.
