Schools for the 21st Century?

Schools for the 21st Century?

Dr Elizabeth Green will present her research into the impact of Christian ethos on student culture at Emmanuel City Technology College. The Emmanuel Schools Foundation (ESF) sponsors a CTC and three Academies in the North East of England. This research was the first to be carried out at an ESF school and Elizabeth’s analysis offers an important critique of the interaction between enterprise, business and faith in the new Academies. Designed to be a jumping off point for discussion, this presentation will be a very practical introduction to the issues facing policy makers, education practitioners, parents and pupils.
