Gerard MacDonald is one of our members and he has with his colleague (David Hursh) published a book on the subject: Twenty-first Century Schools. He will lead a discussion on humanism and 21st Century Schools at our meeting on October 25th. What should schools be like in the 21st century? What is the role of religion in schools? What is citizenship and how does that relate to human rights? Are schools institutions that develop human commodities for the market or try to develop the whole person? What has happened to equality of opportunity? These and man more areas will be central to this discussion about humanism and the role of schools. Perhaps for the first time now in the 21st Century the needs of the economy are aligned with the human need for equality of educational opportunity, and for education in the truest sense of the word. But is it happening in reality?
