MARK’s co-director John Miller was commissioned to write this pamphlet for the RSA, drawing on his experience in education and industry.  It is a critique on Design and Technology education in UK schools, and underlines the value of developing practical skills and a design approach in young people.  You can download the pamphlet at: http://www.thersa.org/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/409507/RSA_Whats-Wrong-With-DT.pdf
