If we want our children to become independent minded, creative and critical people then we need to run conferences, work-shops and other spaces where the imperatives of the current system can be carefully questioned and analysed. Instead of presuming that everything of value can be quantified we need to ask questions about the quality of our shared lives. If we are to begin to imagine a world beyond hierarchy and exploitation we will need the critical resources to do so without presuming that the practice of education can be simply left to the professionals. Education is far too important to be left to institutions which not surprisingly mostly have to chase the current agenda. Instead more radical voices are urgently needed to open up more complex questions beyond the current tired talk about standards, discipline and training for upward mobility.
