Slow Education was launched a year and a half ago and has achieved a lot in that time, including presentations at the Institute of Education’s London Festival of Education, the Sunday Times Festival of Education and interviews on the BBC’s Today Program and Breakfast News. Support from Sir Ken Robinson has ensured growing international interest plus local and national networks of schools who share the Slow Education philosophy.
