Original sin vs original goodness: Katharine Birbalsingh & Steve Chalke on educating children

Katharine Birbalsingh has been described as 'Britain's strictest headteacher'. Twitter erupted when she tweeted that 'original sin' was responsible for the fact children need to be habituated into choosing good over evil. She discusses child education and human nature with Christian leader Steve Chalke, founder of numerous Oasis Trust schools, who says that 'original goodness' is a more biblical view than 'original sin'.
