Writing about web page http://purposed.org.uk/events/purposed-psi-1/

Debate: What is the purpose of education?Love an event that kicks off with Monty Python, provides free cake and has sufficient draw to pull 50 delegates indoors on a sunny Saturday afternoon! :o)

What is Purpos/ed?

Purpos/ed is a non-partisan platform for discussion and debate about the purpose(s) of education.

Purpos/ed kick started a debate in February 2011 that started with campaigns including encouraging people to contribute 500 words(February/March 2011) on their own blogs and these make excellent reading. People were then further encouraged to use quotes from the 500 word contributions 3×5 Flickr quotation mashups(April 2011).

The event of 30 April 2011 brought together people from across the country to discuss, debate and present their views on the purpose of education and ideas for moving the debate forwards and outwards. There was a strong feeling amongst some that this had to be beyond the boundaries of formal education.
