I wrote the section on parents in a new report out today by the National Council on Educational Excellence (NCEE). Parents and children are consumers of education but it has taken a long time to recognise that involving them works well in terms of educational outcomes. The recommendations go direct to the Department for Children, Schools and Families, but with a fair wind.
Gordon Brown commented today that “The members of the NCEE have already changed the world in their chosen careers. The recommendations in this report will help us to achieve our goal of achieving world class standards of education in our country. We must now work together to make sure that they are fully implemented so that the benefits are felt by all.”
