Presented by Jenni Murray. Should twins be in the same class at school? Rock Choir; five years of Women to Win: getting more women into power at Westminster; author Ruth Dugdall.
Presented by Jenni Murray. It's being proposed as part of the new School Admissions Code due out this August that twins always start their primary education at the same school even if this means exceeding the statutory class size of thirty. When school places are so keenly sought after, is it right that multiple children are made an exception in the new School Admissions Code - how important is it that twins are kept together starting school? Also on the show: Rock Choir, five years of "Women to Win": getting more women into power at Westminster, author Ruth Dugdall talks about her new book.
