Zaiser, Richard – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2018
Teaching modern foreign languages is not all about communicative skills. It is also about testing functional abilities.

The main objective of teaching is…

Ainley, Patrick; Allen, Martin – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2018
This article contends that the implementation of government policies is mediated principally by the state, the economy and social class but that these have all changed so markedly since 1945 that education can no longer be seen as having the reforming role attributed to it in the postwar years.

Carnie, Fiona – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2018
We live in a democracy and yet our schools are far from democratic. Decisions made by central government, implemented by headteachers and policed by Ofsted are rarely scrutinised or debated by those whose daily lives are significantly affected by them. Little surprise then that there is so much disenchantment on the part of teachers, disaffection…

Various surveys have confirmed that there is a crisis of recruitment and retention of teachers in schools.

Wrigley, Terry – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2018
In recent years educational preoccupations have largely focused on 'teaching and learning,' often drawing on deficit models of teaching and encouraging myths about 'poor teachers' and 'bad teaching.' Debate about the curriculum has been discouraged--but this has not stopped it being 'reformed,' often in profoundly reactionary ways. This article…
