Reading a Book

The Fabian
Education Reading Group
Hidden Histories/
Curriculum renewal Initiative.

This is the place where we share our thoughts about books we read together.

In addition our Hidden History /Curriculum renewal initiative is an opportunity to review and share which books plays/ poetry/ lyrics /films/TV/Art /museums et al have inspired our thinking and would deepen learners' experience in school beyond the current  reductive curriculum.

Our books  for the summer were: Andrew Adonis' biography of Ernest Bevin, Owen Jones: This Land: The Struggle for the Left and  Akala's Natives: Race and Class in the Ruins of Empire. At our first September meeting we  discussed these. Thankyou for your  suggestions for future group reads to members that you provided through our recent survey. Our reading book for the October 25th meeting was Keir Starmer: The Road Ahead ( Fabian ideas No 657)

The January meeting discussed Building Bridges: Lessons from Bassetlaw for the Country: Sally Gimson. Fabian ideas no 652.


Our February Meeting discussed  Maggie Browning and   Robert Lennox's  Political Education in Schools: The case for Citizenship.Young Fabian pamphlet

Our March meeting discussed Brian Matthews' Redressing the balance'

Fabian Society.
