‘We’ve got the four horsemen of education apocalypse galloping towards our children’ – Tory MP Robert Halfon

We asked to speak to the Education Secretary Gavin Williamson, but it was a “no”. Since taking on his job more than 18 months ago, Mr Williamson has never spoken to Channel 4 News, but his department say he is not boycotting the programme.

We spoke to the chair of the Education Committee, Conservative MP Robert Halfon, and started by asking how much damage is being done to children by them having to deal with lockdown and homeschooling.
