Paul is a SWPS parent, who wants to make us think about education. Since he left university, great progress has been made in pushing up participation rates in higher education and, until the Credit Crunch hit, there seemed no limit to how high the rate could go. But should everyone go into higher education? And what are they going there for? This short talk explores these ideas.About TEDx, x = independently organized event.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
