Green Lane Films, with Iwan Kushka from Superact has just completed a whole raft of films for Rapport to help prevent early school leaving. It was a real eye opener hearing stories of adults who left school early. Much as I may groan about the education system as it is, what these early school leavers all have in common is that eventually they all went back to it. There’s just no getting away from the need to be able to read and write. Imagine not being able to read the contents of all that crap that goes into processed food. I have the privilege of taking my education for granted. After working on these films I learnt to appreciate what an amazing thing we have to provide free schooling for everyone in the country regardless of gender, race or religion.
