Teacher shortages have dominated the education debate in recent months, but there have been changes in the UK's education system from pre-school right through to graduate level.

Tuition fees for students in England and Wales, the changing role and status of secondary schools, primary education reform, life-long learning - all are topics of debate.

What do you think of the UK's education system? Do you agree with charging students to go to university? How can we ensure enough teachers in our schools?

On 29 May at 1200 BST in Sheffield University a panel of guests discussed these and other issues affecting education in the UK today.

We were joined by Dr Phil Jones, Pro Vice Chancellor of Sheffield University, Bev Marshall from the NUT, Jenna Delich from CITINET, newly qualified teacher Gemma Griffiths and David White, Deputy Head of the City School in Sheffield.
