We are the people We've been looking for
This landmark independent documentary inspired and guided by Lord Puttman explores the education system in the UK and asks whether the current system provides young people with opportunities to develop their talents. It offers unique insights across nations and generations and reveals a very incovenient truth about education.
Contributors include influential people such as Sir Ken Robinson, Bill Bryson and Richard Branson.
The film which premiered on the 17th November was free in the Guardian newspaper Family section on Saturday 28th November 09.
On the 1st December there is an online discussion about the UK's educational system, the results of which will reach opinion formers in the UK. Please visit www.guardian.co.uk/we-are-the-people to find out more and contribute to the discussion.
