What could we do to improve education?

Mr Fitz, teacher and voice of sanity, once again speaks truth to power. Unfortunately, power is once again selectively deaf.

Mr Fitz - improving education

I shall leave it to you to decide the possible identity of the female, but I feel she could do with dark hair… perhaps the cartoonist, David Finkle,would do me an edited version… (Shameless hint)

My thanks to David for once again allowing me to share his work, which is always totally on the nose and deserves a HUGE audience.

don't panic - organise


Testing, testing…

Testing, testing...

Testing should inform the teacher and student about where the student is now, and allow them to plan where to go next.

It should not be a stick with which to beat either the student or the teacher.

The cop out’s answer to all educational problems is…

answer - test



If tests don’t solve those problems for adults, why do reformers think they’ll solve things for children?
