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.

Our chat covers a wide range of topics related to eduction and politics. We discuss the current state of eduction in Britain 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 debate whether receiving a good education is based on your parents, your social class or meritocracy. We also discuss how much we undervalue our teachers in the UK and what needs to systemically change.

Mehreen tell us about her life goal, her biggest failure and why the media industry qualifies for the big bin of bullsh*t.
