  1. Have you signed up to the Save Childhood Movement campaign Too Much Too Soon? This is perfect for Clean Slate. I’m going to write a post about it very soon encouraging people to sign up. Once I’ve written it you could link up with it perhaps or write your own? I’m so excited that leaders in education are standing up and saying this, tempered by the appallingly arrogant response of the Conservative education ministers….See http://www.savechildhood.net, and also http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-24058227. PS Thanks for link to my post!
