STEADY STATE NEEDED

Education needs a bit of “steady-state” and predictability treatment. There is far too much chopping and changing and altering of priorities within the educational domain. It may be the people connected with the overall educational agenda get kudos from the work they do in the change field. However, this constant chopping and changing is unsettling for students and doesn’t allow them to settle on particular priorities for any length of time before yet another change comes along.

Education needs a lot more predictability and students along with teachers need to be allowed to build confidence within the shared occupation of learning and teaching. Constantly changing the goalpostsWith hardly a day going past without the announcement to some new initiative likely to have major impact upon our schools is deeply unsettling and is something that creates far too much destabilisation within the educational realm.
