From the Peace Education Network, Britain

Increased military involvement in schools is a policy championed by the current UK government. This has meant funding the development of new cadet corps, fast-track training as teachers for former soldiers, and encouraging the adoption by schools of a military ethos.

The Peace Education Network invite teachers, parents, governors, and  any others involved in school to critically reflect on your experiences as we explore the benefits, risks, problems, and concerns of military involvement in education.

This workshop will be facilitated by John Williams, Secondary RE Advisor for the Archdiocese of Westminster

at Friends Meeting House, Euston, on Thursday 13 November 2014, 5 – 7pm

It is essential to pre-register for this free workshop. Contact Matt, chair of PEN, to book your place.
