The BA [Honours] Youth and Community course at the Manchester Metropolitan University is facing a precarious future. Against this worrying backcloth Janet Batsleer, Reader in Education and Principal Lecturer, Youth and Community, writes to ask our readers the following question.
What would you design into a Community Education course for the future that builds on the learning of the past 40 years or so? Or would you just close it down?
Your replies should be sent to Janet at J.Batsleer@mmu.ac.uk and would be much appreciated.
These are indeed troubled times.
