CCS DashboardColloquium on Education: Philosophy, Policy, and Practice, 22-24 August 2014

ColloquiumIt is becoming clear that state central planning in education lacks the knowledge and flexibility required to achieve its objectives. Decentralised, evolutionary systems that enable diversity, trial and error, feedback, and competition have been shown to lead to more dynamic improvement both in theory and in practice. So why are people so uncritical about the idea of a one-size-fits-all, top down, bureaucratic system of schooling?

Join us at CCS Colloquium this August, as we explore the role of the State in education. APPLY NOW!
