Warwick Sharp has a decade of experience in education policy. Before that, Warwick taught in a secondary school and had responsibility for careers provision. He has been both a school and college governor, and has visited nurseries, schools, colleges and universities up and down the country. Warwick studied economics at Cambridge and has a masters in public policy management. He lives in London with his wife Anna (whose intuitions are always better than his!)
Warwick has always been fascinated by our intuition, and the fast and automatic judgements we all make. This book combines that with what Warwick considers to be the most important and transformational area of our lives: education. Warwick wrote this book because he sees it as an opportunity to explore and share some of the main biases in our thinking which come with being human, and how they apply to education. He hopes it is empowering and uplifting, directly useful for us all as we face big education choices, and a catalyst for further material in this important space.
