If you go down to the pub today you’re in for a big surprise. No, I’m not talking about getting a kicking from the local thugs who claim the bar as their patch. Instead, imagine the scenario: you walk into a Glaswegian bar and lay eyes upon a group of students inside. No surprise there you might think.
In helping bring together the Ragged University I have been working with lots of people who are keen to make a success of this as an inclusive education project. In day to day life we meet and interact with many people and human relationships are always complex. I mean complex in the sense that even the smallest moments of speaking, working or interacting with others, involve countless and immeasurable factors which feed into the exchange and outcomes. This I think is why other people enrich our lives so much, fascinate us, and consistently educate us.
