Lucy Clark: Beautiful Failures

Past Event

Tuesday, 23 May 2017 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

When journalist Lucy Clark’s daughter graduated from school as a ‘failure’, Lucy started asking hard questions about the way we measure success. Her book Beautiful Failures explores–through personal and journalistic investigation–the pressure that is placed on kids today: where it comes from, what we can do to reduce it, and how to fix a broken education system that fails too many kids.
