Lee Jerome and Hugh Starkey invite you to celebrate the paperback release of their recent book exploring children’s rights education. Please join us for a presentation of the book by the authors, followed by reflections by two major figures in children’s rights education. We have built in time for questions and contributions from the floor. There will be a chance to engage with colleagues, share a drink and some nibbles. This event is open to anyone interested in children’s rights, the role of teachers, and the relationship between schooling and democratic life.
