Festival strand: School Fights

How we educate our children remains one of the thorniest issues in society today. Are we teaching children the right things? Are we doing it well enough - and how do we even measure success and failure? Worries about education quickly morph into existential worries about the future of society, especially in the West, where fear of being usurped by fast-developing countries in the East is ever present. This strand looks at the latest ways in which the classroom has become a battleground for wider concerns.
