A refusal to comment
by Peter

A couple of weeks ago Simon Mollan slapped me down on a Lib Dem messageboard for raising the issue of excessive assessed coursework. His argument - a good one - was that these issues should be left to educationalists.

So I will just note that Johann Hari has written an article that I find persuasive, and two educationalists have provided responses that I found enlightening (scroll down the page).

"What is Liberalism?: I should say it means the acknowledgment in practical life of the truth that men are best governed who govern themselves; that the general sense of mankind, if left alone, will make for righteousness; that artificial privileges and restraints upon freedom, so far as they are not required in the interests of the community, are hurtful; and that the laws, while, of course, they cannot equalise conditions, can at least avoid aggravating inequalities, and ought to have for their object the securing to every man the best chance he can have of a good and useful life." C-B.


The Apollo Project seeks to put together new ideas on policies and campaigning to help broaden the appeal and enhance the impact of the Liberal Democrats.
