National Commission on Education

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference


Following a call from Sir Claus Moser in 1990 for a ‘visionary’ review of education and training in the United Kingdom, the National Commission was set up in 1991 as an independent body, sponsored by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and operating under the aegis of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. Its remit was to consider ways in which the provision and goals of education and training should adapt over the subsequent 25 years in order to meet economic and social requirements and the lifelong learning aspirations of the population. The working records of the Commission were deposited in the Institute of Education Library in June 1995.
