What should be taught in our schools?

Below is a recording which provides a fascinating insight into the UK education system and although it is centred on the UK education system the issues discussed and opinions shared are global.

“On March 3rd 2011, an informal evening of discussion and debate took place featuring Katharine Birbalsingh (teacher and author), Toby Young (journalist and author), Dr Ralph Townsend(Headmaster Winchester College), Dawn Hallybone (senior teacher), Tristram Shepard (online educational publisher and former Oftsed inspector) and Donald Clark (e-learning entrepreneur).

The occassion marked both an exchange of views as related to England’s National Curriculum Review and the launch of Katharine Birbalisingh’s book “To Miss with Love“.

Each speaker presented a 5 minute position statement which was followed for a discussion with the 175 people in attendance.”

Here is the audio recording from the evening.

Post your thoughts, below, on the opinions shared in this recording.
