Mehreen is a former teacher, broadcaster and author who is passionate about education and empowering young people. She emerged as an influential voice across a range of topics including education, race, gender equality and faith.
We discuss Britain's state education and debate whether there should be just one schooling system instead of public and private. We discuss the current state of the curriculum: does it needs to change? and ask Is a good education is based on your parents, social class or meritocracy?
Mehreen also tells us about her life goal, her biggest failure and why the media industry qualifies for the big bin of bullsh*t.
