About the Author

Martin Robinson worked for 20 years in state schools in London, as a teacher, as a leader and as an AST. Now an education consultant, he works with schools on enhancing their pupils' knowledge acquisition, questioning and communication skills. He also speaks regularly on creativity, character and a wide range of other current concerns in education.

Martin Robinson makes a compelling case that turning instead to the tradition of the liberal arts can open the minds of a new generation.Marc Sidwell, co-author of The School of Freedom, Managing Editor City A.M.
