In ‘The Knight-Charger’, David Freeman uses the image and legend of Saint George and the dragon to question the present English educational system. He asks whether the politics of education in this age could learn some lessons from the past: in particular the shaping of character, integrity, zeal and a laudable objective for the lives of our young people. Are we emphasising evidence of academic attainment to the detriment of valuing character and the worth of every individual? Is government undermining the rights and choices of parents by imposing statutory laws which may deny those rights? The book does not only diagnose faults but proposes positive courses of action. It is hoped that the influencers in society will be caused to reconsider the policies they promote.

“David Freeman’s book uses a highly original metaphor of the Knight-Charger who enshrines the fundamental values of the age of chivalry, rooted in our Judaeo-Christian heritage, to argue for reaffirmation of such values in contemporary education." - BARONESS COX
“The Knight-Charger deserves to be read widely. Politicians, educational leaders, teachers and parents will find themselves engaged and provoked by this call for the renewed emphasis on courage and character, for ‘heart’, in the English education system." - DR. MATT FINN, University Lecturer
"David sets out a noteworthy vision for an education that doesn’t stop short at knowledge and skills, but ultimately leads to wisdom. Whether you work at the chalkface or at the strategy table, The Knight-Charger is a must-read.” - SIMON REEVES, Principal, Immanuel School, LondonAbout the Author:
