Lost Generation?

EDUCATION IS LOSING ITS LEGITIMACY

Patrick Ainley and Martin Allen have a well-crafted and disturbing article in The Guardian (Further Education) today: “Education is losing its legitimacy – time for staff and students to step in” (p.4).

There is an online version called “What choice for school and college leavers in this job market?” which you can check out at:

Their new book is Lost Generation? New Strategies for Youth and Education (Continuum, published this month). You see more on this here at: https://rikowski.wordpress.com/?s=Lost+Generation
