'The reform of private schools will not alone be sufficient to achieve a good education system for all, let alone the good society; but it surely is a necessary condition. At this particular moment in our island story, the future seems peculiarly a blank sheet. Everything is potentially on the table. And, for once, that has to include the engines of privilege. It is time to learn from past failures: the patchy dialogue; the lack of consensus-building; the loss of nerve; the reluctance to see the big picture. It is time, in short, to get it right. For if not now, when?' Book jacket.
