Education Britain Conversations – Jarlath O’Brien

Education Britain Conversations give The Education Foundation the opportunity to shine spotlights on to the UK’s leading education practitioners, policy makers and projects.

In this episode, Ty Goddard speaks with Jarlath O’Brien, headteacher of Carwarden House Community School, Surrey. Jarlath also authored ‘Don’t Send Him in Tomorrow’ published by Independent Thinking Press.

The Education Britain campaign focuses on celebration, ambition and inspiration. A desire to have a different conversation about education and to look to the future – to change our system so it is able to meet the major challenges, to identify what’s important and what’s working and to rediscover our national education treasures.
