“Overschooled but Undereducated: how the crisis in education is jeopardising our adolescents”
“Your wonderful brain, and your responsibility to use it wisely”

Slide presentation used on September 28th, 2010. John Abbott will be returning to Atlantic College sometime in early November to discuss with those students that took copies of the book Overschooled but Undereducated what they think they could do to further the implementation of these ideas.
Q and A from a public meeting held on 9th July, 2010, concerning St. Mark’s School in Larkhall.
