True grit? Whose job is it to build resilience and character?

Trivium 21c


This is the text of a talk I gave as part of an excellent and interesting panel at the London Festival of Education, 28th February 2015, some of the words below might be different to those uttered!

To paraphrase Mary Shelley:

“It may…be judged indecent in me to come forward on this occasion; but when I see a fellow-creature about to perish through the cowardice of her pretended friends, I wish to be allowed to speak, that I may say what I know of… character [and who should build it.]”

We can’t even agree on the colour of a dress let alone what traits we should instil in every human being!

Whose job is it to make us gritty who can build a modern Jerusalem from our unpleasant character?

What about the Daily Mail? Yes…

The Daily Mail reported that ‘Head transplants’ will be possible in 2 years time.
