Professor Mary Wild will bring a welcome dose of evidence based argument to the debate on the future of education. Education develops the potential and talent of individuals to thrive and succeed in future economic and societal contexts that are often fast-changing and uncertain. Yet in many respects education policy and popular opinion suggest that the answer to tomorrow’s opportunities and challenges should be rooted in past structures and practices. Of course history can be a good guide to the future – but only where the perception of that history is well-informed.
So, was there ever a “golden age” of education – and even if there was, should it be a blueprint for the future. Mary will explore the evidence and lay out her conclusions.
