During my research on education from 1930-70 in Britain, I have read hundreds of inspectors reports from this period; it is striking how non-judgmental and constructive they are; identifying areas of improvement but focusing on working with the school to implement a solution.

Most importantly, however, 1950s educational provision was underwritten by the relationship between school inspectors and teachers, as inspectors focused on helping and guiding schools, rather than rating them. Show 25 25 50 100 All.
The sort of education which equips them to do whatever they want in life - and leaves no opportunity out of reach.

At the moment, there are 1310 primaries below this floor - mostly those in poorer areas. Since 2010, the number of children in failing secondary schools has fallen by almost a quarter of a million. Because those of us who know Richard Cairns recognise that he is one of the most visionary leaders in education today…. Those who are born poor are more likely to stay poor and those who inherit privilege are more likely to pass on privilege in England than in any comparable county.
If acting is increasingly a stage for public school talent one might have thought that at least comedy or music would be an alternative platform for outsiders.
