Abstract

This book consists of eleven chapters written by young teachers who have completed their Masters studies in Leadership either at Canterbury Christ Church University or at Cambridge University and one by a tutor on the programme. They have identified, researched, formed well-crafted conclusions and, most important, recommendations on real, live issues in English education which we are sure resonate with all educators in whichever system they work. A range of research methods are used: on-line surveys, semi-structured interviews, prioritisation activities and critical incident analysis. The voices of young, articulate, thoughtful challenging teachers are essential if our children’s education is to developed and improved to prepare them for a complex, rapidly changing world in the rest of the twenty first century and quite possibly beyond. These are our future school leaders. These young teachers have lived through a dogma, standards, tests and inspection in English schools. They are themselves products of a school system that has been test results driven with high levels of accountability. It is to their credit that they are able to offer a balanced critique of a narrow standards agenda and offer positive alternatives. This is important in that they are potential senior leaders in our schools. There are signs that the English system is changing towards a more holistic, self-evaluative, nuanced approach. Their findings, thus, become even more relevant as schools seek to change direction to embrace children’s achievements as well as their attainments. Following chapters deal with different issues, all giving interesting insights
