At long last a lobby group
at an appropriate level of influence appears to have started the crucial debate needed to wrest Education away from party politics and party ideologues. Education is far too important to continue languishing as a political football and used as vehicle to drive on hidden ideologically based agendas.
“England's education system is failing to meet the country's long-term economic needs and requires a radical overhaul, a report warns."
"A group of academics and business leaders says a new cross-party body should set long-term educational goals protected from the electoral cycle."
"They also want more emphasis on team working and problem-solving, and a baccalaureate system at A-level.”
Is this the tipping point moment for which many have been waiting and yearning?
How could LSN get involved and support this initial impetus that could lead to the necessary wresting of education away from the general election seesaw and destabilizing effects of party political ideologies?
Goodness knows one might see a radically changed approach to inspections, league tables, and (be still my urging heart) the remodelling of the portfolio of the Secretary of State for Education for all political hues and complexions?
