Carmichael writes on post-Brexit education for John Catt

Neil Carmichael, a former Conservative MP and recent chair of the Education Select Committee, is to write on education reform for independent John Catt.

Progressive, Productive, Proper: A new reform agenda for Education, Carmichael's first book, will be published in January.

Readers will be "introduced to ideas to create an education system capable of delivering an innovative, fair, competitive and resilient economy for the decades to come," according to the publisher.

Carmichael told Schools Week last month: "To make the best of Brexit and, indeed, to address some of the primary factors in the Leave vote, the government should be considering a game-changing approach to education, investment in the Keynesian way should be uplifted, alongside major structural refomrs to ensure UK workers have the skills we need to push our economy forward."

Carmichael was chair of the Education Select Committee between 2015 and 2017 before losing his Stroud seat at the last election.

The signing comes after a number of notable recent buys for Suffolk-based John Catt.
