Around the world, many education systems struggle to bring a high-quality education to those students who need it most: Students from lower socio-economic backgrounds. But in one London school, a knowledge miracle is happening. Guided by headmistress Katharine Birbalsingh, Michaela School is changing children’s lives by challenging them to learn. Described by Boris Johnson as an “incredible school”, Michaela School delivers where other schools often give up.
Join the New Zealand Initiative for an inspiring evening with a revolutionary in education.
