In the wake of the Casey Review, which examined integration in the UK, the idea of swearing an oath on British values has gained traction across media and political discourse. At Wonder, we appreciate the Review’s role in highlighting the plight of women who have been marginalised by their poor English language skills, but believe that discussions around the idea of an oath obscure the real need to invest in tailored language provision and cross-community initiatives.
Today the Wonder Foundation acknowledges the recommendations of the Casey Review into inclusion and opportunity in the UK. The Review, which tackled the issues of social integration across different communities, rightly highlights the importance of empowering marginalised women, improving English language teaching in community settings and encouraging more social mixing among young people of all backgrounds.
