Slugger Awards (Media) Pitches:The ‘Light a candle’ category

From reader ‘Willis’:

…realise that while destroying is fun, building is hard work.

A media category for individuals and campaigns which seek to help us understand each other and create shared solutions.

The BT ‘Sit down; sort it out ‘campaign might be a contender except that it seemed one-sided.

There is not enough good, popular journalism seeking to explain the economy, skills and education in a way that might encourage shared goals.

There is plenty which wrings hands and blames.

What are the outcomes for pupils who have gone through our education system? What can be done about persistent skills gaps?
