Happy Prisoner Festival - Education

What is education – what do we, as a society try to achieve through education, and why? We have all had to get used to home schooling this year and are concerned that even more children will be left behind because of the digital divide. Are schools just about education, or is there more going on in terms of society and culture? How much of education is actually cultivation?

All conversations will be facilitated by a professional philosopher, trained in philosophical enquiry with The Philosophy Foundation. There will be 4 guest speakers who will begin a conversation around the topics we are exploring. This will be the starting circle conversation, after half an hour the facilitator will invite you, the audience members into the enquiry circle where you can ask questions, raise points or just continue to listen. 

This conversation will be via Zoom and you'll be sent the link and password to join the w/c 22nd March.
