Complex challenges within our society require complex solutions. This includes a robust community with robust services working collaboratively from shared perspectives and values.
This week after more tragic and meaningless losses of young lives, the response has been political (more police) or educational (there is no pipeline). The discussion on twitter has been polarised to say the least. Put ‘exclusion from school pipeline to crime’ into google and you will be confronted with charity, research and mainstream media reactions and responses on this.
I had a chat with Chrissy Kelly who works in schools directly with young people seeking to prevent exclusion. There is so much to talk about and explore on this topic so in 20 minutes we allowed the conversation to flow and trusted that what came up would be helpful, interesting and supportive.
