As usual, you get more in five minutes with Stephen than a week with some others. He is passionate about the future of schools and intensely positive about their future. However, as we know the nature of schooling has to change dramatically if they are to remain relevant to young people.
Stephen makes the point that we are in an ‘in between time’ at the moment. We know that the industrial model of schooling has had its day and the future will deliver substantial change. He describes schooling being “…like Peter Pan, caught in a never never land and not wanting to grow up”.
