Teaching Evolution and Inheritance in Schools
uLearn Naturally Science Week 2015 - abundancecentre.org
This video is one of the special events from our uLearn Naturally Science Week 2015 programme of ground breaking events for families, children, professionals & adults. This was a very interesting community discussion hosted by Abundance Centres (UK) at All Eyes On Egipt (Brixton) with a panel of distinguished thinkers and well respected community teachers.
The title is an opening to many issues, one focal point was to inform and dialogue with community about changes in the National Curriculum regarding the teaching of these subjects in Schools. As you might expect these matters relate to many issues and so the discussion was fluid and serves as an excellent opening to what is clearly a need for ongoing communal conversations.
Our distinguished panellists were:
