There’s an informal group called Purpos/ed that are currently debating the purpose of education. They are just one aspect of a growing global debate on this topic.

In Scotland it is now well and truly exam season. For many schools the Purpos/ed debated is probably an irrelevance, as since the very first marked assessment the purpose of education has been clear to them: to rubber stamp individuals through a vetting process for continued access to the education system.

Perhaps tomorrow it will be something more.
