Late news but there is to be a discussion about the notion of democratic education, somewhat narrowly within schools, tonight at 8.45 p.m. on Radio 4.
Rachel Roberts argues that education needs a democratic revolution.
Rachel describes her own experiences in democratic schools – as a student, teacher, and now educational consultant. And she argues that even if every school won’t make the transition to the full kind of radical democracy she enjoyed, every school – and every student – can benefit from the democratic ethos.
A Podcast will be up shortly after the broadcast which will include some Q&A.
