Multi national and bilateral donors have prioritised achieving SDG4. Their advocacy seeks to raise billions of dollars for aid to education over the next decade to ensure all children are enrolled in conventional education systems. Will this hasten or delay decolonisation? Keith Lewin

Thank you, Leon, for a very stimulating talk.

There is a waiting list if sessions are full and spaces often become available
Elisabeth Barratt
01:07:05
How dow e get on the waiting list - such a pity to come to the first two and not the third - forward looking event
Susan Durston, CHILD to CHILD,Independent Education Advisor
01:07:38
Can you not open up more spaces?
Jennifer Agbaire
01:07:41
I thoroughly enjoyed that, Leon. Thank you!
Julia Paulson
01:08:24
We'll do our best to open more spaces (zoom subscription capacity allowing) - the waiting list link should be there but we will check on that after this session
Christie Smith
01:09:34
There are still spaces on both of the next two events, only this one was sold out so far! Please email ed-events@bristol.ac.uk if you have had trouble registering for the next two sessions

Carol Black, the director of the documentary film “Schooling the World”, has given a talk about WEIRD society that might interest people on this call: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Imd1GykFGJU
Susan Durston, CHILD to CHILD,Independent Education Advisor
01:10:08
I have my tickets, but think of the message being spread more widely-and potentially more action!
Derry Hannam
01:10:24
Shouldn’t we encourage and support young people who are asking for a more relevant curriculum in schools - groups such as “Teach the Future” in England and Scotland often seem to have a better grasp of the problems than politicians and policy makers.
Richard Fransham
01:11:03
Thanks Smriti, an interesting looking reference.
Derry Hannam
01:12:51
I recently sat in on a meeting between the UK group of young people called Pupil Power and a group of English head teachers. The young people knew about Freire - the head teachers did not.

Lovely, Veronica!
Susan Durston, CHILD to CHILD,Independent Education Advisor
01:14:37
I tend to think that peace is part of this process-peace with our environment and others. Do watch an inspiring exposition on this from Sussex two weeks ago.

We need to open up time and space in our school systems for young people to pursue their concerns - I am campaigning for “20% Time” - all schools should allocate 20% off curriculum time for student directed learning - resourced by the abolition of GCSE. derry.hannam245@gmail.com

Unschooling School shares a good article about decolonizing schools. It is by Je’anna Clement if the
Bruno Gioia Sandler (he/his)
01:19:46
Democratic education and other alternatives to conventional schooling are actually approaching learning on a way that resonates with everything that it is being said in here. I wonder why are they still so marginal and not known by the big public?
Richard Fransham
01:20:37
(Sorry, I hit “Return” accidentally. This continues my above). Je’anna Clements works with the Riverstone Village learning centre in South Africa. This is a link to her article about decolonizing schools: https://www.unschoolingschool.com/decolonizing-school.html.

we should aim to incorporate indigenous cosmologies while not dismissing a foundation of indigenous epistemology of places and spaces (land, land usage, and recognize traditional spaces of sovereignty). We can “pat ourselves on the back” for labeling curriculum/policies/et al as including indigenous cosmologies, while ignoring pressing present issue, thus failing to incorporate a holistic indigenous paradigm. This may lead to dangerous complacency if we are not critical in “how we incorporate” and careful to holistically* incorporate indigenous cosmologies (ideologies, knowledges, and also current realities).
Richard Fransham
01:29:29
I’m very active with groups addressing the concerns being expressed here. Please contact me if you think from what I have posted above that I might be of some use to you. rfransham@rogers.com

UNESCO GEM Report - debating inclusive education is like debating abolition of slavery or ending apartheid
mlaureanti
01:30:06
Feyerabend said in his famous book Against the method :" . Cultures change,they interact with other cultures and the indefiniteness resultingtherefrom is reflected in their worlds. This is what makesintercultural understanding and scientific change possible: potentiallyevery culture is all cultures” . I would like to ask, which should be our role as educators within the school to enhance not one method but many methods considering that many school system are embedded in certain specific “western” programs

I have been having discussions with people about the possibility of making November 20th an Earth Day except that it would be about reimagining education. Would the presenters and people attending this meeting have any interest in pursuing this idea? Perhaps it could be tied to the report coming out in November.

Absolutely
