Dialogue: How does education nurture wisdom?
Westminster Abbey Institute brings together leading thinkers for the last in a series of three dialogues on the value of wisdom in public life.
Speaker: Dame Alice Hudson
Chair and interlocutor: Detective Chief Superintendent Stephen Clayman
Alice Hudson is Executive Head Teacher, Twyford C of E Academies Trust and a member of the Trust's Board of Directors. She was made a Dame in The Queen’s 2016 Birthday Honours for services to education.
Detective Chief Superintendent Stephen Clayman has served as head of the Metropolitan Police's East Area command since 2019, leading policing in Redbridge, Havering and Barking and Dagenham. He is a Fellow of the Westminster Abbey Institute.
Detective Chief Superintendent Clayman asks Dame Alice to reflect on how schools nurture wisdom in future leaders and what challenges they face in doing so, including whether too much is now demanded of them: are they standing in for other influences such as family and religion?
