Concerns, conversations

Concerns, conversations to be had and solutions. The data on Haringey’s Attainment 8 and Progress 8 results when viewed through the protected characteristics of race and gender show concerning patterns. The apparent poor performance of Black boys is not new or particular to Haringey, having existed for what now seems to be too many generations with similar patterns in most other regions nationwide. In those quietly expanding corners where political correctness does not penetrate “the fault” may appear to rest with the children, their families and their communities. Certainly “responsibility” (response ability) must exist with the children, their families and their communities, let us build that progressive capacity up. That said, let us face for a moment the context in which we live. Even today research into implicit bias in general school systems and teaching functions has barely been looked at for fear of scratching (let alone breaking) that very delicate surface. However on the ground few teachers would deny, in private if not in school, the challenges of cultural empathy and racial prejudice played out powerfully across all levels of school community life; teacher to teacher, student to student, teacher to student, senior management to teachers, teachers to parents, government to school and on and on. Such dynamics and more are associated with and hidden behind those “small strange consistent discrepancies” we mentioned earlier, we need to be far more observant, fearless and active to open the way for real quality improvement and a better future of genuine quality assurance. For too many families continued poor performance in schools (now normalised) clashes harshly with their personal testimonials of witnessing the loss of their child’s early years brilliance, correlated by them with the growing immersion in school life. Who hears these subdued cries? Have you too observed this apparent loss of early years brilliance? [ ePoll ]. All that frustration, at witnessing the disruption of nature self-perfecting. How is such a potent concern dispelled? It is not and it is not easy for your typical parent to communicate concerns that grow in such chronic ways, most parents are simply intimidated by the institution of school and some schools enjoy that protective veil.

It is said that every parent thinks their child is brilliant, well the idea being that most see closely their children’s profound beauty through their multiple intelligences whether they be bubbling under cover latent to others or dynamically expressed for all to see. Maybe many parents are generally deluded like that however it is a fact that one small yet profoundly consistent segment of society’s youngest cohort fail under standard system education consistently taking damage to their life prospects. Why? We are warning here that this is the tip of an iceberg. As a civil society of communities we must ask the questions and build the answers that restore justice and harmony for all; we must establish and maintain the common good. “Tip of an iceberg” here means that these issues protrude from a broader body of issues that affects everyone in the UK. Raising the care levels required to solve the issues raised in this report will raise up the kind of integrities that will see the whole system improve. UK schools fail to climb international league table Richard Adams, Sally Weale, Helena Bengtsson and Severin Carrell Tue 6 Dec 2016 10.44 GMT First published on Tue 6 Dec 2016 10.00 GMT https://www.theguardian.com/education/2016/dec/06/english-schools-core-subject-test-results-international-oecd-pisa The government’s ambition to make Britain’s schools among the best in the world in teaching core subjects by 2020 appears to have been foiled, after international comparisons published on Tuesday showed few signs of improvement. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s programme for international student assessment (Pisa) found a littlechanged performance in reading, maths and science among 15- and 16- year-olds in England – but good enough to make it the best performing UK nation after a sharp decline in Scotland’s performance. In the 2015 election campaign, the Conservatives said they aimed to have England among the top countries in Europe by 2020 based on international rankings. But the steep improvement now required means the ambition is doomed after the latest results were almost identical to the OECD’s 2012 tests. The Pisa exams are administered to more than 500,000 pupils in the 70 countries that paid to take part, with the three subjects examined worldwide at the end of 2015. the article continues...
