I’m delighted to be giving an in-person lecture at the Buckingham Battle of Ideas on Saturday 17th July. In my illustrated talk I will explore why the 2500-year-old idea of a liberal education still makes us uncomfortable.
For further details see the Battle of Ideas website.
Other sessions on the programme include: Is it time to scrap exams?, The big bad behaviour debate, What does the Sewell report mean for education?, What now for overseas students?, Who’s in charge? From school strike to protests at the school gates, and Is online learning the future? (which I’m chairing). It should be a thoroughly thought-provoking event.
Places are limited due to covid restrictions so if you’re interested, get your tickets quick!
