Purpos/ed: #500words Take 2 Posted by Doug Belshaw On June 2, 2012 In Education No comments We had a great response to our second call for 500-word contributions to the Purpos/ed campaign. The aim was to get people to reflect on what they believe to be the purpose(s) of education within a constrained word limit. You can find all of the contributions at http://bit.ly/purposedu500 or by scrolling through the 500 words category on the Purpos/ed website.
