Interview with campaigner against selective education, Len Goldman, 100-year old NUT member from Brighton

The NUT has interviewed Len Goldman, a 100-year old NUT member. 

Len Goldman was born in the middle of the First World War. Despite failing the equivalent of the eleven-plus exam and leaving school at 14, he went on to become a teacher and spent his career in secondary education.
