Sue Cowley interview featured in today’s The Guardian

January 24, 2017

“Learning doesn’t only happen in school. Not all holidays are bad; not all absence from school is damaging. Our kids were about to spend six months where they wouldn’t sit down and do any formal lessons, but that didn’t mean they would stop learning.”

Sue Cowley author of the recently published title Road School: Learning through exploration and experience, has been interviewed by The Guardian about her family’s travelling adventures and how she managed to home-school her children during the course of the trip.

Click here to read the feature on The Guardian website.

Road School is the story of their family’s adventures around Europe and across China, and what they learned along the way. Part comedy travelogue, part parenting guide, part educational philosophy, Road School asks you to consider what ‘an education’ really means and offers tips for anyone planning their own learning adventure.

Sue has another title lined up for us in 2017 – so keep an eye out for The Artful Educator: Creative, imaginative and innovative approaches to teaching, which is due for publication in April.
