The Educators – Tony Little

| 0 comments

On Wednesday 27th August Sarah Montague interviewed Tony Little on ‘The Educators’ on Radio 4. The programme is available on i-player and I will add it to Box of Broadcasts.

Tony LittleAs you can see from the programme blurb (left) Tony Little is the Headmaster of Eton College, a school unlike the schools most of us have or currently work at. What do you think about his views and ideas?

Earlier this month his views on the the approach to exams in England led to some media articles including this one in The Guardian newspaper – Exam system unimaginative

The letter that is referred to in the article is one that the Headteacher of Barrowfield primary sent to the pupils and parents of Year 6 in July. This is discussed in more depth in these two posts by Richard Rose:

Thank you for a letter of appreciation

Let not the facts get in the way of a good story

Perhaps your role relates to tests and exams directly or perhaps you have experience of tests and exams personally or wioth a family member. What are your thoughts?
