‘We have never had more access to information, yet we are arguably more ignorant than ever before…’
My nephew, Iain Akerman, is an experienced highly thought-of journalist and I have always found his work interesting and well researched. This latest article posted on his blog, originally published in Campaign, November 2015, is no exception.
Whilst reading this it occurred to me that all he had to say could be applied to the world of Conductive Education. Most public communication between those working and involved in CE, takes place via social media, with brief comments and announcements, and the world press has little or no interest at all in discussing or reporting the facts about it. Most press coverage tends to be in local newspapers announcing fundraising events and reporting amounts raised for a particular local centre.
As there seems to be a general trend worldwide to accept the news as given by those with control over the media, as Iain suggests, perhaps CE will continue to be out there in the wilderness. Of no interest.
