The Association of Schools and College Leaders (ASCL) is running a Commission titled 'Do a third of young people really leave school unable to read and write?'. This refers to the number of sixteen year-olds each year who fail to achieve a grade 4 in Maths and English combined.
Iain Veitch and Roy Blatchford, Commission Members, will present a background to the Commission and emerging recommendations. They would then welcome responses and ideas from those attending.
