Guests: Ian Gilbert
In this Meet the Renegades, Ross Ashcroft speaks to writer and educator Ian Gilbert. They discuss the faltering education system in developed nations and how it is affecting a generation of children.
Ian gives an insight into the ways in which our current neoliberal education model means most schools are now profit and results driven.
They also explore broader societal issues to see if inequality and consumerism can be linked to education.
Has the pernicious creation of hero or saviour complexes derailed the collective good?
What are the consequences of immunity or vaccine passports and will these proposed temporary measures become the norm?
Fraudulent neoliberal economics and environmental degradation have undermined the public health of society and the delicate ecological balance of the planet.
