BLUE COLLAR CONVERSATIONS VIRTUAL CONFERENCE 2020
Esther McVey speaks to parents about the impact the schools shutdown is having on their children. The parents are all part of the group UsforThem - a campaign to reopen schools that's taken the country by storm this week.
They ask how can it be right that school children - those least affected by COVID-19 itself - are the ones who are being most impacted by the Government's measures to tackle it?
A year on from our last discussion on education, schools are still shut. What have we done to a generation of children in that intervening year?
Blue Collar Conversations started in the pub back in the summer of 2019 as an open event to discuss ideas that champion working people.
Now, due in-part to 'lockdown', Esther McVey has moved these discussions from the pub to the podcast, where every week she discovers real stories from working people.
