Expectations, Encouragement and Empowerment
- an Education:
An alternative to Targets, Testing and Tables
 - a Tragedy

Cynthia Bartlett


   
"Young people can be born into disadvantage or develop disaffection through a complex series of events. Society must not watch silently as an imposed regime of targets, testing, league tables and inspection force schools to contribute to increasing the deficit or widening the achievement gap. Current policies, caused by an inappropriate market model and micromanagement for political ends, are set to destroy the power of education to provide opportunities for happiness, achievement and success."

"In times when gloom and misery threaten to engulf many vulnerable individuals, teachers and support staff in schools sustain light in their communities. They are committed to the educational process of raising expectations, encouraging and praising individuals and celebrating success. They need the freedom and resources to empower young people to take control of their own lives and enhance the lives of those around them.
"

Cynthia Bartlett has more than 30 years experience of teaching in secondary schools in South London and in Oxfordshire. As an Oxfordshire headteacher she had the opportunity to undertake research into values in education. Her work includes interviews with headteachers whose responses provide insight into the many challenges facing education in the UK. The book explores the background to current education policy and the effect that recent policy has had on schools and on the communities they serve. The key conclusions and recommendations will be of interest to headteachers and policy makers, teachers and teaching assistants, parents and students.
