In the first part of this text young people from secondary schools around Britain talk about what they enjoy and what they find difficult about school; what matters to them about teachers and classrooms; what it's like being at school in the UK and what changes they'd like to make. Their comments are interspersed with an analysis of the vision offered by contemporary writers as to how things might change as the 21st century gathers momentum. In the second part David Blunkett, Tim Brighouse, Anita Higham, Richard Pring, Nick Tate and Ted Wragg respond to the young people's comments and offer their own ideas and beliefs as to what is important. Finally, by drawing comparisons with Denmark and using the views of Danish young people and Margrethe Vestager, this book offers its own vision for education in the years ahead.
