Why we need to ask bigger, bolder and better questions about education It's time for less dogma, fewer polarised, sterile arguments and the humility to realise how much we can learn from others. Two hundred and sixty four million children in the world do not attend school. (Unicef) That number is increasing not decreasing.

Ethical Leadership in Education - National Governance Association Ethical Leadership for a better education system “The nation trusts us to form young people into the best that they can be. The public expects us to know what kind of example we should set them, but do we? How do we know what’s right or wrong?” - Carolyn Roberts, Commission Chair (April 2017)
It’s Time to Build an Army of Compassion and Here’s How We Do It After the recent attacks in Paris, the Dalai Lama said: “Unless we make serious attempts to achieve peace, we will continue to see a replay of the mayhem humanity experienced in the 20th century.” It’s easy to feel helpless when watching the news or thinking about how deeply rooted the suffering is in this situation and in many other situations of conflict around the world today. When a person watches a relative die in a conflict, their contempt for the other side can last a lifetime.

Headteachers' standards 2020 Introduction Headteachers are leading professionals and role models for the communities they serve. Their leadership is a significant factor in ensuring high quality teaching and achievement in schools[footnote 12] and a positive and enriching experience of education for pupils[footnote 8]. Together with those responsible for governance[footnote 5], they are custodians of the nation’s schools.

Articles > Don't be a hero - Leader Magazine Collecting and analysing evidence on what improves student learning outcomes has been my life’s work. Some may even call it an obsession. Over the last 30 years, I have analysed the findings from more than 1,400 meta-analyses based on 80,000 studies on educational effectiveness – involving more than 300 million students. If I’ve learned anything from all this research, it’s that almost everything a teacher does in a classroom works.
