A blog created to celebrate international freedom in education day. Sadly such freedom is in great danger today, thanks to the Badman Recommendations.

Sometimes I make spelling mistakes, sometimes I indulge in sarcasm, from time to time I'll use hyberbole, I might even mix my metaphors. I am an imperfect human being - deal with it!
Hurray, to the death of the DCSF, will miss your posts, could you turn it into a good news blog?
Loving the grey out and pop up that appears over the old site!!!!
:))It is good.
How can you simultaneously support Michael Gove and 'freedom in education'? Gove is pushing for greater authority in schools over childrens' minds and bodies.
Depends what you mean by support I suppose. I didn't vote tory so I don't *support* him in that respect. However he had the good sense to understand that what the former government planned on doing to HE was a *bad thing*, and by that token he is supporting freedom in education. If a school has control over what it teaches it is, IMO, far better than were the government to have sole control. It means parents can choose to send their child to a school with an ethos that matches their own or they can (thanks to the conservatives & liberals) choose to find alternative provision - ie do it themselves ergo freedom in education survives. It's quite simple ;)
