Tory MPs accused of adding fuel to ‘culture war’ in education report
The Guardian reports on a new report from MPs on the education committee. The report has found white working-class pupils have been let down by decades of neglect in the education system in England and also said that terminology like “white privilege” is divisive. But the paper calls the report “controversial” and quotes critics – including one member of the committee behind the report – as suggesting that it is being used to try and create a culture war.
