Fearful that current 'direction of travel' heading inexorably towards a divided system that will fail many more children than it helps.

Having spent seven years setting up and then growing Teachers TV, I was lucky enough to be able to track the real progress teachers and schools have made over the last ten years. After Gove shut TTV down (with over 60% of the profession making use of our videos every half term) I have been following the draconian changes in how schools are organized, how teachers and children are assessed and how the curriculum is being narrowed down to grey 1950's model. I feel that Gove is getting away with a deeply ideological agenda motivated by a fundamentally false premise: that our schools are seriously under-performing against other countries. I want to support any aspects of the fight back and LSN is clearly a vibrant part of the opposition.
