On Thursday 24th November 2016, the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues hosted 4 former Secretaries of State for Education, or Shadow Secretaries of State for Education at Character Matters. The Rt. Hon. Michael Gove MP, the Rt. Hon Nicky Morgan MP, the Rt. Hon. Baroness Estelle Morris, and the Hon. Tristram Hunt MP all spoke on Why Character Matters in Education. The sold out event for staff and students of the University of Birmingham was a great success, with the speakers forming a panel to answer questions from the audience on the importance of character in education.
Senior Fellow in the Jubilee Centre, Lord James O'Shaughnessy chaired the event, with Prof. Sir Anthony Seldon, University of Buckingham, giving the vote of thanks.
