…everyone else is 2-tier, so it must be the best thing for us…?
The first time I heard this argument from a supposedly intelligent person (who shall remain nameless of course – this blog does not believe in naming and shaming) I nearly fell over in surprise. When did “one size fits all” come into education? Where does parental choice come in? And who pays for schools anyway?
Our point here is that change of school system is massively disruptive to children, teachers and communities. It is up to the supporters for change to show there is clear and unequivocal evidence that the benefits of change outweigh the risks. They haven’t. All of their arguments are built on sand and may be exposed as myths. This blog will, day-by-day, challenge these myths and give alternative more realistic views.
