Key Voices #70 – Reflections on a long career in governance with Fiona Millar

“There were no league tables when I started and there are going to be no league tables this year! That opens up a space, I think, for a different kind of conversation. I just hope there’ll be the will to have that conversation when this immediate period is over.”

This week we talk to writer, journalist and campaigner Fiona Millar. We discuss how her role as a governor has helped her write about education over the years in a meaningful way. She also considers how governance has changed since she began as a parent governor in 1992.

We talk about how she managed her role as chair alongside a busy career, as well as parenting, and think about the challenges ahead for schools and their governing bodies.
