    Perhaps it would be good to have a general forum to promote upcoming events?

    Here’s one coming up at the University of Edinburgh…

    You are most warmly invited to the book launch and CPD afternoon of:

    Social Justice Re-Examined:
    dilemmas and solutions for the classroom teacher
    edited by Rowena Arshad, Terry Wrigley and Lynne Pratt

    …this brave attempt to bring together social theory and what happens in the classroom marks a step forward in Scottish educational thinking. – Alex Wood, educational consultant, Herald Scotland, November 2012

    Friday February 1st 1- 3.30pm, G43 Moray House School of Educaiton
    (light lunch refreshments will be provided)

    There will be an opportunity to attend sessions with the authors (a combination of practising teachers and academics) who will provide a workshop/conversation on their topic. You can join up to two of these workshops/conversations:

    Social Justice in practice in early career teaching – Helen Knowles
