Slow Education Debate

Banter with Carl Honoré about his radical movement

Slow guru Carl Honoré & Eton master Mike Grenier, who founded the Slow Education movement, would like to challenge your ideas of what is thought to be the best way to educate the youth. As expressed by their manifesto: ‘The movement for Slow Schools & Slow Education has faith in the capacities of teachers & heads, & seeks to promote learning in depth, rather than a debased curriculum based on goals, inspections & unreliable standards. We deplore the excessive use of crude tests, currently undermining English & American education.' Pop along for discussion, debate & a lovely glass of vino. General admission.
