Cheltenham Festival - Bill Lucas speaking 5/10/20

02 September 2020

Bill Lucas  is speaking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on the 5th of October

Lockdown has seen the biggest change to school life in centuries: laptop screens have replaced classrooms, parents are now teachers and exams have gone out the window. Whilst for many this is a long-awaited change that brings education into the 21st century, it has also exposed the fragility and inequalities of the system. Some children have thrived in this new environment, others have been left behind.

This is an opportunity for a radical rethink; teacher and University Challenge star Bobby Seagull, Professor of Learning Bill Lucas and poet and teacher Kate Clanchy (Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me) discuss with Hashi Mohamed what the future of education could look like.
