Anarchy in the UK

Today I received an email from the RSA alerting me to an interesting event which I simply can’t attend. Why do I enlist for newletters from organisations 400 miles away? The main reason is to remind me to keep in touch with what interesting organisations are doing. I know now that at this time next week, there is to be an event entitled Rethinking Schooling and that live streaming is an option – as is visiting the Index of audio lectures.

It was while browsing this archive that I came across a very interesting debate entitled Teen Rage – Anarchy in the UK.

Including the vigorous debate which followed the invited speakers, the whole thing lasts for 90 minutes but is very stimulating for anyone involved with young people. It is currently top of the list in the archive.

The event was reminiscent of In The Wild – a fringe event (sponsored by Channel 4) at the Scottish Learning Festival.
