    If we are to improve educational outcomes for all, one of the things we need to do is move away from the notion of ‘labelling’ children and their families. Rather, we need to focus on the needs of such pupils, never forgetting their greatest need is relentlessly high expectations and great teaching.

    As fragmentation of LAs continues, the need for authoritative, evidence based guidance and signposting has grown. This collection of contributions from some of the UK’s leading educationalists does not provide an exhaustive list of all the challenges that might arise, but it has a good go. Learn More

  7. The Best For My Child: Did the schools market deliver?

    The Best For My Child: Did the schools market deliver?

    Parent choice, diversity of school provision and the idea of a quasi-market in schools have dominated education policy for the last thirty years since the passage of the 1988 Great Education Reform Act. But has the market worked in the way that was intended? Are schools better? Do we have a fairer school system? Do parents really have choice?

    Author and journalist Fiona Millar looks at why these policies have proved so seductive to a generation of politicians and seeks to uncover whether we really are are doing 'the best for all our children'. If we are not, what could and should future reform look like? Learn More

    Teaching is a profession where we are persistently trying to ensure that our children have the best possible future, yet gender is still a huge hurdle in terms of expectations. We are setting children up to fail because society instills certain messages in them that can often stop them from achieving what they desire and as teachers, we aren’t always opposing them. Often, teachers are so removed from this issue that they don’t see it going on in their classroom. This book provides thinking points for teachers and useful strategies for schools to overcome this divide and provide equal opportunities for all children. It’s commonplace to see this divide in newspapers and on social media, it’s something that needs to be addressed. As educators, we need to be at the forefront of this revolution.
