Potter, Sophie – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
The UK education system is becoming increasingly dominated by exclusive economic and political ideology. The neoliberal agenda marketises young people and encourages them to take part in a competitive system. The rise of multi-academy trusts (MATs) further exacerbates an already inequitable system in which young people with special education needs…

Tomlinson, Sally – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
This article discusses the astonishing ignorance at all levels as to how Britain has become a multiracial, multicultural society in a post-imperial age, the hostility towards changes in the education system which would help clearer understandings of the imperial past, and the efforts of teachers and other educators to assist in the creation of a…

Emmerink, Ralph – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
As an educator, and a student myself, I believe that the current system of graded assessments used ubiquitously in education systems worldwide is quite flawed. Although certain issues arise in its implementation, a suitable alternative might be to consider gradeless assessments. Thus, rather than completely advocating for a change in the way…

White, John – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
This brief paper welcomes the notion of local pockets of resistance while raising two problems about it. One of these concerns teachers' values and leads into wider considerations about what the underlying aims of education should be. This prepares the ground for the 'deeper pocket' of the title. This has to do with challenging the lack of…

Bassey, Michael – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
The Department for Education sees school education as responding to what its ministers perceive as the economic demands of the future. They fail to recognise the need for young people to be prepared for the ecological problems on the horizon, such as climate change, economic turmoil and the human consequences of a global shortage of food, water…

Saghera, Rajwant – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
Greta Thunberg, teen environmental activist, famously said on school and education 'why should I be studying for a future that soon may be no more, when no one is doing anything to save that future? And what is the point of learning facts when the most important facts clearly mean nothing to our society?'. Thunberg's speech at the 2018 UN Climate…

Russell, Lucy – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
Guidance for schools now includes policy to address sexual harassment and statutory requirements to deliver relationships and sex education, yet recent evidence shows that sexual harassment, in schools and online, remains a pernicious problem. Why does educating for gender equality feel like resistance, and what are educators actually resisting?…

Spicksley, Kathryn – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
Since 2002, the number of academy schools in England has increased -- first gradually and then, since the 2010 Academies Act, rapidly. For some, a full academisation of the school system in England appears inevitable. In this paper, however, I explore how new teachers and senior leaders within academy primary schools quietly resist identifying as…

Holt, Madeleine – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
A new film explores the UK's most radical state secondary school. XP school in Doncaster, a disadvantaged area of England, is putting kindness at the heart of its school culture, and reaping outstanding student engagement, attainment, attendance and behaviour. Its approach is in marked contrast to a recent tendency in UK schools to focus on tough…

Archer, Nathan; Albin-Clark, Jo – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2022
Recent years have seen international and national policy intensification in early childhood education (ECE). This has manifested in multiple ways, including the design and implementation of increasingly prescriptive curricular policies. Against this backdrop some early educators are pushing back. Drawing on work from their recent enquiries and…
