Across the Red Line

Anne McElvoy presents a new series of the show that invites people who disagree on an issue to debate – and then to listen to each other. Is private education divisive – or is this criticism a dangerous distraction? Fiona Millar, who has long campaigned to improve state education, meets Dr David James, deputy headteacher of an independent school, to debate. Then conflict resolution specialist Louisa Weinstein invites each of them to find out more about what has shaped their opponent’s worldview and beliefs, to see if they can reach a deeper understanding of the other’s position.
