Research student (PhD Education)
Alka is the daughter of a teacher and used to swear she’d never teach nor have children. Now she’s been working in education for the past 15 years and has two children who often say that she’s become ‘education mad’ especially since starting her PhD. She is a member of the Academy of Ideas Education Forum and is a parent-governor for the East London Science School team. She writes on education for spiked and other online publications.
