About

The RSA Education blog is written by the RSA Education team. It offers comment on the world of education particularly where it overlaps with the development of our projects.  

We the Education Team have been blogging for some time now, with varying degrees of success and frequency. However, it’s not always easy, and our blog account is full of abandoned, half written blogs.

Why?

It’s partly because, like so many in education, we find it difficult to stick to writing short posts on a single idea and always tend to get distracted and go off on tangents. Like this one.

But mainly it’s because education feels like a particularly contested field – both ideologically and personally – where the stakes are no less than the education of the nation’s young people. All that makes it difficult to write without being controversial.

So, we want to make it clear that we are blogging as individuals. The blog is the place for our opinions, thoughts and provocations as we form them, rather than meticulously thought out pieces of writing.

These are not the views of the RSA. Nor should anything we write here affect the reputation of the projects we run, the partners we work with, and – most importantly – to the schools we work with, their learners and their teachers, whose lives and careers are subject to plenty of scrutiny and critique as it is.

So, please join us and as we embrace the open, collaborative, opinion driven climate of the blogosphere in a thoughtful and generous spirit.

Then comment and tell us why we’re wrong…

  1. it would be great if you had RSS feeds of these blogs so I could get them in Reader. Or maybe you do and I can’t find them.

    Mitch – great that you want to follow the blog.

    I think we do have the RSS feed set up. At the risk of revealing my total lack of understanding, clicking my browser’s feed button leads me to – https://rsaeducation.wordpress.com/feed/

    I hope that works for your feed reader, but let me know if you have any more problems…

  3. feeds are working (subscribed myself) – in wordpress admin you can also add feed links to the sidebar (widgets) which may make it a little more explicit for people

    Thanks for that – good tip. I’ll add the widget soon.
