After a Damascene moment following a school trip to the US, Sir Iain Hall realised the UK's approach to urban education is all wrong. In Glass Ceilings, the hugely experienced and respected educator lays out his vision to get social mobility moving again in the UK.

It is easy, as educators in the state system, to be critical of wealth buying enhanced social mobility but such criticism alone will not advance the future prospects our students. If we really want to help them then we must make access to a high quality education the civil rights issue of our generation.

If we want to enhance their opportunities and reduce inequality in our society, then the classroom is the best starting point.
