    What are the Government's priorities regarding current education policy? Will anything change significantly if re-elected next year?

    Why is the Government increasing the standards for trainee teachers, yet free schools and academies are allowed to employ unqualified teachers?

    How will the Government act on the feedback provided in the 'Workload Challenge' questionnaire?

    Serious question: how do you square the claim that not studying STEM subjects disadvantages teenagers with the A-level system, which forces teenagers to specialise before they really have an opportunity to know how this will limit them? Surely the answer is not to push teenagers into dropping subjects like history (the fact that the statement was released the day before Armistice Day did not go unnoticed in the media, nor were the specialisms of most of the cabinet in humanities subjects ignored), but rather to switch to a broader based IB system? In other words, it's not a problem with the choices of teenagers, it's a problem with the system that foolishly delimits those choices.

    How do you propose to sort out the crisis in secondary and primary school place some parts of the country, including Brighton and Hove where I live. With a significant number of new free schools opening in areas already with a surplus of places, hasn't this just diverted key funds away from places which actually need it? Will you make it easier for local authorities to open new schools where needed to ensure schools are not over crowed and over subscribed?

    Your Government introduced the 24+ loan, a good idea in principle however there are people who cannot benefit from this scheme because their local FE colleges actively choose not to offer certain qualifications. Some towns have excellent FE colleges which offer a full range of GCSEs, A levels, Access to HE courses and even the International Baccalaureate Diploma to local residents of all ages, but other towns have colleges which do not offer any academic qualifications at all. Is it acceptable that FE colleges can choose to only provide vocational courses and leave non-school age people without an alternative route into university?

    Will you guys reduce people going to university in the future?

    And will you do something about focusing more balance when it comes to secondary education?

    Like not focusing on A levels as the be all and end all for example, putting more emphasis on apprenticeships and vocational qualifications?

    I feel that too many people feel that they should go to university because they feel that the alternatives aren't as fleshed out as the "get A levels>go to uni" way.

    Are there any developments planned or already put in place to increase 'attention' to science and research? In order to make them more attractive, friendly and more rewarding corresponding to amount of effort required these days.

    Isn't it high time we abolished all faith schools and ensure that religious indoctrination plays no part in our children's lives?
