So what is Punk Learning?

It's a philosophy that recognises the importance of students having complete control of their learning. In Never Mind the Inspectors Tait Coles justifies the need for punk learning. His manifesto challenges the orthodoxy and complacency of teaching and allows students to be central to a critical educational culture where they learn how to become individuals and social agents rather than merely disengaged spectators who have their part to play' in the neoliberal ideology of modern schooling.

This book is for everyone with an interest in learning, teaching and doing things differently.
