Editor's Note

James Daly, Jun 01, 2006

Via Chris Lehmann, I agree with this: "Just as supermarket magnates realized that when people shop for groceries, they want to do more than stock the fridge, we need to understand that the final result of a dozen years of education isn't just a gilt-trimmed diploma. It's about creating a brighter and more compassionate society. First, however, we must devote as much energy and thinking to our schools as we do our food emporiums." On a related note: my talk at the Open University on Monday will be webcast; here is the announcement for the talk, titled The Students Own Education.
