Education forward: a new movement for change in our schools

Henry Stewart's picture

Would you like an education based on enjoyment, creativity, love of learning? Would you like a change from the moves towards rote learning and exam focus of recent years?

Education Forward brings together a whole range of people involved in education.

Launch: Leeds, Saturday October 14th.

Book your place here. All are welcome

Speakers include Lord Jim Knight, Mick Waters, Priya Lakhani, Valerie Hannon, Hywel Roberts, Debra Kidd, David Price, Ross McGill, Madeleine Holt,

As the site says, "join us to develop an optimistic, future-focussed movement for change in the education of all our children. Education Forward is your opportunity to listen, learn, respond and contribute to the movement for positive, optimistic future focussed learning for all."
