Hi fellow SERG members! I found this very interesting article that I wanted to share. It is about museum education in the States, but many of the issues discussed are similar to what we are facing.
“Insistent Questions in our Learning Age” by Beverly Sheppard. Changes in the content and structure of museum/school programs reveal serious questions about how museums are perceived as essential educational resources. In this article, the author examines this relationship as symptomatic of the continuing marginalization of museums in public policy and recognition and, ultimately, public support. She urges museum educators to assume some of the leadership for change.
