Should members of the British National Party be allowed to work in schools?

Ed Balls is ordering a “study” into whether teachers who are members of the British National Party should be allowed to work in schools. “I have always believed that membership of any organisation that espouses racist views is fundamentally incompatible with the values and ethos of the teaching profession,” the Schools Secretary has said. It’s a tricky one this.

Homework for primary students

As a parent of two primary school age children (years 2 and 5), I have to plead guilty to being a rubbish parent when it comes to organising homework. My 6 year old gets two books a week to read at home with a parent, plus spellings to learn. My eldest is supposed to read in her own time and keep notes of what she has read, do a set of maths homework, spellings, and project work in her log book.

Department for Education spending cuts

So the headline figure for the Department of Education spending cuts is £359 million. But what exactly is going to be affected? Well the good news is that frontline teaching posts and funding for resources seems to be ringfenced. Bad news is, anyone involved in Diploma delivery will be questioning the strength of the new qualifications given that the new academic diplomas are to be cancelled, and the Department refers to “scaling back support for delivery of Diplomas” as saving them £13.2m.

Computers are Making Textbooks Obsolete

A survey of school teachers found that they were more likely to invest in the latest technology in the future, than traditional textbooks. But it was also important for children to understand that not all of the information on the internet is accurate, and textbooks should be used, alongside technology, to verify facts.
