What Is To Be Done? Possibilities for the Counter-offensive (FORUM 1)
Author: TREVOR FISHER
This article sketches one line of march for the counter-offensive to current education policy called for in the previous issue of FORUM. It highlights three key areas where, in his drive to ‘revolutionise’ the education service, the Education Secretary has over-extended himself and become vulnerable. It calls for sharp and sustained scrutiny of current policy in the areas of teacher supply, the provision of school buildings, and changes to the examination and league table system purportedly designed to raise attainment.
