Michael Merrick
teacher, North Cumbria; education and social commentator

Michael lives in Cumbria with his wife and children. He works in education and has taught various subjects and ages since joining the profession in 2010. He was a contributor to the Blue Labour book of essays, which sought to reclaim an authentic conservative legacy within the now liberal-dominated Labour Party, and was involved with research and writing for its close kin, Red Tory.

He has written for various outlets and takes an interest in the ways in which a values clash is shaping education, politics, and the character of an increasingly fraught civic space in the UK.
