The Defence Committee is holding an inquiry into the education of children of Service personnel. The inquiry focuses on the provision of education in Service schools overseas and the performance of the Ministry of Defence's Agency, Service Children's Education, but it will also consider the issues facing children and young people when they return to education in the UK and the schooling, and assistance with schooling, which MoD provides in the UK.
The purpose of this online forum is to obtain the views of people with direct experience of Service children's education - families, teachers, education managers, and, most importantly, young people themselves. MPs on the Committee will respond to the comments with the aim of producing a lively debate.
We hope that this will help us identify the most important issues and get ideas for solutions to any problems. We hope that you will tell us about the positive things, as well as about any problems.
When the forum is closed, a summary report and transcripts of the comments will be presented to the Committee and this, together with the written and oral evidence received, will help shape the report we make to Parliament. The Government will have to respond to the recommendations we make.
