These clips were made for Channel Four Online and some of them can be found at the Unteachables homepage. The idea was to contribute to the debate on education from the point of view of school kids.
Despite its tabloid title the series “Unteachables” was a very well received
contribution to the debate on education and exclusion.
Shot on the Silwood estate, Rotherhithe, South East London, and in Stockwell &
Kennington South West London, these clips were produced in Spectacle workshops by 11 to 15 year olds on the theme of education. The workshops involved basic video training in camera, sound and interview techniques.
Although The Unteachables site at Channel 4.com is no longer updated, there is still information about the project and the issues it has raised:
