R29 Campaign gathers all-sector momentum, as Tony Breslin and Cosette Reczek publish paper in Governance

Back in March, the Non-Executive Academy, with support from Frontline Consulting, hosted the launch of the R29 Campaign in Parliament. The R29 campaign takes its title from Recommendation 29 of Tony Breslin’s report, Who Governs Our Schools? Trends, tensions and opportunities (RSA, 2017) which calls for an all-sector governance commission to be established.

Today, after three subsequent roundtable discussions – hosted by the Institute of Directors, the National Council for Voluntary Organizations and the housing consultancy, Campbell Tickell – the campaign has moved up a notch with the publication of a paper by Tony Breslin and Cosette Reczek in corporate governance journal, Governance, which, with the kind permission of publisher Lesley Stephenson, we republish here.

Further roundtables are planned for Wednesday 26th September, hosted by the National Governance Association in Birmingham, and for Monday 5th November, hosted by ICSA in London.

To register your interest in these events or in hosting a future R29 roundtable or in otherwise supporting the all-sector Better Governance Commission that we are in the process of establishing, contact tony.breslin@breslinpublicpolicy.com.

Lessons From Lockdown
For too long, changes to the education system have been driven by political considerations, short -term difficulties and even, at times, nostalgia. Lessons From Lockdown sets out why this piecemeal approach to reform needs stop and provides an invaluable contribution to the debate that now must take place.
