Abstract

For those of us who have spent our professional lives working alongside children and young people who are disaffected with education, re-imagining education — or more specifically, re-imagining schools — is crucial. Could it be possible for the state education system to meet the needs of all children and young people, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation or looked-after status? Could schools be changed so that all children and young people were offered curricula and pedagogy that were relevant, inspiring and engaging? Could the education system as a whole be designed in such a way to meet the needs of all, so that none became disengaged, disaffected or disruptive?
