Question : 

Question So how do these learners fit into our present education system?

Answer : 

Answer Not very easily

Maths failure 'threatening UK economy’ : 

Maths failure 'threatening UK economy’ Britain's failure to teach mathematics at both school and university level to a high standard has cost the economy £9 billion Standards in maths are slipping due to government interference, the report concludes. (Reform, 03/06/08)

One million pupils 'failed by Labour exam policy : 

One million pupils 'failed by Labour exam policy An 'entire generation' of school children has been let down by the Labour government, a new study has claimed. The report, by the Bow Group, reveals that almost a million teenagers failed to achieve even the lowest grade, a G, in five GCSEs since the party came to power. (Guardian, 20/04/08)

Slide 36:

Schools below 30% GCSE target : 

Schools below 30% GCSE target 638 secondary schools in England below the government's "floor target" of 30% of pupils getting at least five good GCSEs including English and maths, in last year's results. 9th June 2008

Vision 1 : 

Vision 1 Our vision is one in which these aspirations are realised for all children and young people. (Gilbert 2020, 2006)

Vision 2 : 

Vision 2 A compelling vision for the UK. The Review recommends that the UK commit to becoming a world leader in skills by 2020, benchmarked against the upper quartile of the OECD. This means doubling attainment at most levels. (Leitch, 2006)

Vision 3 : 

Vision 3 Our vision is that each individual maximises their potential through personalisation of their learning and development. (Harnessing Technology, 2005)

Vision 4 : 

Vision 4 The Vision – we need to maximise and fulfill the potential of all our people – young people and adults- to contribute knowledge and skills of world-class quality. (Foster Report – Realising the Potential, 2005)

Vision 5 : 

Vision 5 Our vision is that within the next 10 years the Higher Education sector in England will be recognised as a major contributor to society’s efforts to achieve sustainability through the skills and knowledge that its graduates learn and put into practice. (HEFCE e-Learning Strategy, 2005)

Principles of reform : 

Principles of reform Greater personalisation and choice for every child Better teaching More flexibility to combine school,college and work-based learning More vocational provision A broader, richer and more interesting curriculum Support for every young person and adult to develop skills needed for employment and life Lifelong learning for all High quality university courses with excellent teaching Increased and more flexible access to higher education

Under 5s : 

Under 5s disadvantage starts early in life and children who get a poor start tend to fall further behind as they go through the education system. And despite the improvements we are still not providing enough childcare places in a flexible way that meets parents’ needs.

School age years : 

School age years There are still too few excellent secondary schools for parents and pupils. While standards have risen, they are not yet high enough for all. Parents and teachers worry about truancy and bad behaviour

14-19 year olds : 

14-19 year olds Too many pupils drift, become disenchanted with school or get into trouble and drop out at 16. Vocational learning is still seen as second best. And pupils leave school insufficiently prepared for the world of work.

The world of work : 

The world of work The UK lags behind other countries in terms of output and skills. A large number of adults lack vital skills in literacy and numeracy. And too often the training system does not give employers the sort of courses and qualifications that suit their business.

Government’s education ambitions : 

Government’s education ambitions Balls

What they don’t understand is… : 

What they don’t understand is… No matter how many reports and initiatives you produce, there will be “no significant impact” to the education landscape until you replace the existing model

Slide 55: 

As long as we continue to replicate traditional models of teaching and learning, and continue to treat all students as if they were the same, we will still find that, come 2020, that there has been “no significant impact” in terms of quality, achievement, relevance, skills

Slide 56: 

As long as we continue to bolt on technology to the traditional teaching approaches we will continue to alienate a large proportion of learners
