The Relevance of Primary Education
Coe, John
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v60 n1 p71-76 2018
This article sketches a vision of how primary education needs to be re-shaped to let schools focus more sharply on the development of children as individuals. Rapid social change requires a fundamental re-thinking of formal education and assessment. High-stakes testing must end. Greater weight must be given to the application of knowledge and skills. The parent-teacher partnership must be re-vitalised.
