Beautiful Failure forum videos now on line

Videos clips from the Guardian/ ALL Beautiful Failure forum at State Library Victoria last year are now online at www.all-learning.org.au

In November 2014, journalist Lucy Clark published an article that resonated with hundreds of thousands of people around the world.  The overwhelming response to her article led her to explore the pressure-cooker world of 21st century education, the way we measure success, and how it can be harmful to kids in her book, Beautiful failures (2016). She challenges accepted wisdoms about schooling, and asks some vital questions.

The panel at the event included:

  • Lucy Clark (author of Beautiful Failures and journalist The Guardian Australia)
  • Peter Hutton (Principal, Templestowe College)
  • Eric Sidoti (Director, Whitlam Institute).
