Frustrated by a regime of statutory testing, and keen for a mid-life adventure, Sue Cowley and her partner took their children out of school to educate them on the road. Road School is the story of their family’s adventures around Europe and across China. On their journey they experienced awesome historical sites, diverse cuisines and fantastic geographical phenomena. They also experienced whining kids, satnav disasters, and dodgy accommodation. Part comedy travelogue, part parenting guide, part educational philosophy, Road School asks you to consider what ‘an education’ really means. In a world where schooling is increasingly being standardised, and where government testing puts ever more pressure on our youngest learners, Road School is the story of how one family stepped out of the system, and set off on the educational adventure of a lifetime.
