OU on the BBC: School Day

Updated Tuesday 11th May 2004

School Day explores education, through the eyes of the people who know it best.

Education is where the future is made - and everyone has an opinion about what is, or what should be, happening in the UK's schools. But what is the true picture? On the day the 2004 secondary school league tables were released, cameras followed the people who know what it's really like - from students to ministers, head teachers to bus drivers.

First broadcast: Wednesday 12 May 2004 on BBC ONE
