Jessica Shepherd The Guardian, Tuesday 10 February 2009

PEN Comment:We would of course ask Charles and Ken to look closer at ideas like the ‘Catalogue Curriculum’ and ‘invitational’ institutions (particularly convivial, all-age community-based learning centres). Issues of choice and the support of a wide range of people including ‘pedagogues’ within the learning landscape  also need fully unpicking. Nonetheless boys keep up the good work. We’d be happy to enagage with you and take your ideas  forward.
