SI Presents – Martin Allen and Patrick Ainley on the prospects for UK Education

In this public talk Martin Allen and Patrick Ainley discuss themes from their recent book “Lost Generation? New Strategies for Youth and Education”. They place the coalition government’s education policies in historical perspective and argue that the current crisis means we must confront long unanswered questions about the purpose of education and its place within wider society.

The Lost Generation?

Martin and Patrick have written about these issues for Sociological Imagination in the past: see their first and second articles for more commentary on these issues.
