Sensible reform demands reflection on its purpose, and acceptance of responsibility for its outcomes. It will decentralise education so it can serve local communities and focus on the fundamentals. It does not involve extravagant spending on the trivial, the transient and the trendsetting, but expects participation and makes sure every voice is heard.
Marching Schools Forward focuses on 20 important principles. It stimulates thought and opens debate on many vital questions.
Education must be about families, educators and policymakers contributing to a shared agreement about what kind of education is 'suitable' for each and every one of our children - now and into the future.
