“If you had a whole month of school time what would you choose to learn about?”
It is often asserted that if we let children and young people ‘just do what they want’ then they’d just play computer games and go shopping. Deputy Head at Matthew Moss, Mark Moorhouse, was keen to prove this wrong. He picked up his phone and set off round the school asking students one simple question: “If you had a whole month of school time what would you choose to learn about?” The answers we see on this film are wide ranging, considered, show a fundamental interest in learning and an engagement with the process of their own lives. An ‘apathetic generation’ this is not!
