Select Committee on Defence Eleventh Report

6  Conclusion

139. We consider it self-evident that the children of Service personnel should receive at least the same quality of schooling and educational opportunity as any child being educated in the UK. We demand much of our Service personnel, not least that they adopt a life style that is often turbulent and sometimes dangerous. In turn, Service personnel deserve assurance that their children's education will not suffer because of their parent's employment.

140. We are not convinced that the DfES and the MoD currently take the interests of Service children sufficiently into account.
