Rethinking The Value Of Work And Education
David Goodhart, Author, "Head, Hand, Heart: The Struggle for Dignity and Status in the 21st Century"
Why are jobs that require high academic qualifications prized over technical vocations, despite the latter being no less meaningful or important? Will the Covid-19 pandemic spur broader debate on the value of work, amid broader recognition of essential workers’ contribution to the economy? We discuss these themes with David Goodhart, author of the book “Head, Hand and Heart: The Struggle for Dignity and Status in the 21st Century.”
