Opening up thinking about education today for tomorrow - Imagining possibilities and solutions

Wednesday, January 06, 2010


Day 1: Some random thoughts (sent from my iPod touch).

Usual suspects:
  • raising standards
  • improving teacher quality
  • assessment and accountability
  • principal leadership.

Emerging suspects:
  • early years and pre-schooling
  • establishing curriculum standards for early years and pre-schooling
  • distributed leadership.

Of interest:
  • Do we measure school effectiveness based on school effectiveness of previous years, rather than for contemporary learning?
  • Are we working towards sustainability of obsolete models of schooling?
  • Are policy makers adequately trained to do their work?
  • Is the Fourth Way more about the need to think and act both globally and locally in improving schools?
