This makes grim reading if the emphasis on testing and remediation is correct. Clearly failing should be addressed but such one club approaches make me wonder whether the joy of teaching will be something to look back at in future years nostalgically.
All edu-roads, courtesy of IT, seem to lead to even more teaching to the test. I can only hope that the recent Safe Harbour legals this side of the Atlantic help blunt the current weigh-the-pig pedagogy. I ain´t gonna hold my breath though.
