In this powerful guest post, James Williams reviews the last five years of education policy and argues that we’ve have been saddled with ‘second best’. Havoc has been wrought on education with reform that has been as chaotic as it has damaging. In the run up to the general election, this piece is essential reading for anyone – parent, school staff member, education academic, local or national politician, school governor or student teacher – who wants to join the debate, we need, to shape a better education system for the next generation of children.
