We need more women to join the education debate and not just in the audience.
http://voice.adobe.com/videos/DqVeCoftWDm – I made this video called Education and Gendered Cheese.
After I posted it @AnnMroz sent me a message saying ‘you have combined my greatest irritations in one clip’.
I think this clip resonates with many; male and female, because despite having a large female workforce, the decision making process and the debate is still largely male dominated. There is no excuse to have all male panels debating education anymore.
It was ill-conceived to allow Katie Hopkins a voice debating education when there are so many women in the field with far more experience. She courted controversy like a pantomime dame to be laughed at – I saw no men paraded in this way. The serious stuff was debated by the men.
The TES recently printed this http://ow.ly/z2s6u.
It discussed how money is being wasted by encouraging girls to become scientists, that if they are interested they will study the subject anyway. The psychologist thought it was not a natural selection for many female students. That is all very well until you see gendered cheese.
This is another conference coming up with SSAT (The Schools Network):
This was Belmas at the weekend (July 12/13) great – women in the panel – why should this be unusual?
I leave you with this article written by US blogger, @PLThomasEdD discussing nipples, females and education reform.
