Teaching : Notes from the front line. We are, at the time I write this, in need of a revolution in education. This is a strong statement and I don't use it lightly Paperback / softback

Description

Our current education system is overloaded with amendments, additions and adjustments which have been designed to keep an outdated model in the air.

But it is crashing. And as it comes down, we see the battle of blame begin.

It is time to take our vocation back, to learn to trust ourselves and each other and, crucially, to take control of the direction of education and policy. We have allowed powerful institutions to manipulate the fear of parents and teachers to the extent that neither can see how to proceed without being told what to think.

Covering education policy, PISA testing, Ofsted, exams, pedagogy and much more, this book explores how the so-called accountability and quality systems in our country have been used to straight-jacket teachers into compliance, even when flying in the face of emerging knowledge and understanding about learning. This is a narrative of hope, of how the system could be different.

It offers tales from within the classroom of learning, of hope, of laughter, of gentle subversion.

This is a call to arms for a pedagogical revolution.

Will you answer it?
