So, if roughly a quarter of UK young people are unemployed, and in the same boat as a quarter of young graduates, there’s not much point to education? That was the myth that was laid to rest by the OECD’s learning expert Andreas Schleicher at the 12th Education Fast Forward debate (EFF12) which kicked off BETT Week in January.
On May 7, UK election day (12.15pm BST), he will close “Rethinking how we learn” (EFF13), broadcasting globally from Norway, which features ground-breaking US educator, writer and social media expert Howard Rheingold.
