mobility commission is delighted when the government announced it

would set it up. Because what we have done is identify areas where

:01:58.:02:00.

children from poorer backgrounds were falling behind more rapidly

:02:01.:02:06.

than their counterparts in affluent areas. We needed the extra

:02:07.:02:12.

attention, the extra re-sources and the boost that these areas are going

to give us. The thousand word she will have to write them, that is

Airlie is the key and the earlier you can do things the better it

Teaching unions welcomed the government's concern over the impact

of deprivation on children's education but they fear the new

money will not be enough to offset damage done by spending cuts. The

:02:57.:03:05.

principle of Chantrey Academy in Ipswich joined us and I asked them

:03:06.:03:09.

for a reaction to the opportunity area programme. I think we are very

:03:10.:03:14.

pleased with the announcement, it gives us the opportunity to work

:03:15.:03:17.

with disadvantaged students to raise their aspirations and gives them an

:03:18.:03:21.

opportunity to see what else is out there. There is a huge untapped

:03:22.:03:27.

resource in this area which given the right chance you can get some

:03:28.:03:29.

really talented people into those top positions. But the donor what to

expect or how to expected or how to get there. The government says

:03:35.:03:38.

expert has a problem with social mobility. Why is that? Two reasons,

:03:39.:03:45.

one is that a lot of the families in the area don't have the pioneers in

:03:46.:03:52.

the family so they have no idea in terms of what going to university

:03:53.:03:58.

can mean for them and their futures. Secondly, you have the aspirin

:03:59.:04:02.

seeing it is not for me. We have to raise expectations and say it is for

:04:03.:04:05.

you, it is just for students like you and there will be a job at the

:04:06.:04:08.

end of it. After university you will go into a job and into a career.

:04:09.:04:15.

Somewhere where you have a work ethic and go on and on improving and

:04:16.:04:19.

improving and recognising the fact that your development doesn't just

:04:20.:04:23.

stop at the end of the day. There is money that comes with being an

:04:24.:04:28.

opportunity area, what would you like to see it spent on? We want to

:04:29.:04:34.

see generational change, it is not about the next three or four years,

:04:35.:04:37.

it is about getting the kids the results of the next three or four

:04:38.:04:40.

years to deal with the shortfall but beyond that the knowledge and

:04:41.:04:44.

expertise goes back into the community so the next generation

:04:45.:04:46.

promotes the next generation promotes the next, until you

:04:47.:04:51.

establish a learning culture in this area. Thank you.

Dean Saunders electrocuted himself in his cell in prison last January

was unacceptable. Care UK she said that since tightened up its
