9781781350560: Thinking Allowed on Schooling

Professor Mick Waters, former director of the curriculum at the Qualifications and Curriculum Agency, where he gained a heroic reputation, is now the president of the Curriculum Foundation. He's the down-to-earth voice in the increasingly complex world of education and has endeared himself to school communities in the UK and overseas by talking the sort of sense they need to hear.



One of the UK’s most influential education figures tells it how it is
Is the school system fit for the purpose of helping the pupils of today achieve their potential?
How has schooling developed over time and where might it be going in the future?
Do national politicians improve or stifle schools?
What matters in teaching, learning and leadership?

Mick Waters uses the experience he has gained from a career in which he has both worked in schools and had major roles in shaping education policy at local and national level to offer a unique perspective: that of someone close to the classroom, but with an ability to see through innovation, policy and practice. Mick tells it how it is, explains his beliefs and sheds light on progress and problems in the school system.
Mick Waters is a calm, seasoned voice in the rising clamour of debate on the future of education. Drawing on his long experience in classrooms and in national policy, Thinking Allowed on Schooling offers a wise, well-informed and practical perspective on the challenges that face education and how to meet them. Unlike many passing politicians, Mick Waters has spent his life in education. This insightful, compassionate book distils the essence of what he has learnt and what we can learn from him. An essential read.
Sir Ken Robinson

Mick Waters has produced the right book for the right time. He penetrates to the heart of the many open discussions we are having about education today. We may not agree with all he says, but we cannot help but be stimulated to think at a deeper level by reading this book.
Dr Anthony Seldon, Master, Wellington College

If you have ever heard Mick Waters talk and been inspired and influenced by what he has to say then this is the book you have hoped he would one day write.
Iain M Erskine, Head of The Fulbridge Academy in Peterborough
In this highly readable book, Mick gives a brilliant review of the good, the bad, and the plain old ugly of the current educational landscape.
Andrew Chubb, Principal, Archbishop Sentamu Academy
