"O Rose, thou Art Sick", "O Testing, thou Art Malign": A Critique of Two Official Reports (with Apologies to William Blake)
Richards, Colin
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v51 n3 p299-303 2009
Two official reports were published in 2009, each potentially important to the immediate and medium-term future of primary education and each (in the author's view) potentially damaging. The conservative nature of the reports' proposals are outlined in this article as are the opportunities missed for a fundamental reappraisal of the primary curriculum and its assessment.
