Gary Heywood-Everett - Rochdale Pioneers Workers of Education: The WEA Clas...
Sat 8 April 2017, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
This presentation tells the story of how the first WEA tutorial class in Rochdale 1908 came to being, the roots of worker education in the town, who the students were, and what some of them came to become. Drawn from the mills and often the poorest neighbourhoods in Rochdale, this experimental group of students were indeed pioneers of worker education.
