I’m already excited. 😀
On 1st February 2011 we’ll be launching Purpos/ed as the first step of a 3-year road to instigate and facilitate a debate about the purpose of education. If you haven’t already, follow @purposeducation on Twitter and sign up for the newsletter.
On a related note, the Department for Education has called for comments on a National Curriculum Review. There are three questions that form the basis of the call for comments; if you’ve got a Facebook account, add your voice on the DfE Facebook page.
Even better than adding a lone voice, however, is launching into action. That’s what we’re aiming longer-term with Purpos/ed, but in the shorter-term why not get involved in some local activism with #ncr11, co-ordinated by Graham Brown-Martin (Learning Without Frontiers)?

Really curious about Purpos/ed? Want to get involved straight away? Contact me!
