Phoenix Education News


As ever, we’ve had another busy month at Phoenix. As well as representing the organisation at the IDEC conference in Finland and the Alternative Educational Futures conference in Birmingham, we’re not just planning the next few months, but the next few years!

Some of our current programmes are due to end soon, therefore we’re thinking about the type of interventions we’d like to have in schools across the UK after them. If there are any particular challenges you think we could tackle, or schools who could use our help, get in touch!

After the success of last month’s art exhibition, we’re also planning more events including a talk in London and another event in collaboration with Hebden Bridge democratic school. Watch this space for more news on both!

Enjoy the June newsletter and please forward it on to anyone who you think may be interested!
