  3. What's a 'generic disposition'? (Mentioned in the introductory letter from Jon Coles).
     
  4. Gosh, that took a long time to do! Gave me the chance to get it all off my chest though!
    If I were filling it in as a parent or governor though (unless questions are different) some of the terminology would have perplexed me!
     
  5. See above! (What is a generic disposition?)

    Will keep upping this thread. This is your chance to tell MICHAEL GOVE what you want to see in the next national curriculum, which will be appearing in 2012.

    Up again. Please do not express surprise when the Governors at your school turn round and say they are 'embracing the Academy Vision' or 'Refreshing the workforce' to employ a potter /wood carver /Tai Chi specialist instead of a class teacher. Think about it. Who covers PPA now ? What if all the kiddies did pottery every week instead?
    Also, if you are a Facebookitty Person and prefer that forum, there is this space for YOU to make your point:

    The Government really do not have a clue what to do with the curriculum. Unless you make your voice heard, who knows what we might end up with? Do you know how keen your Governors are to turn your school into an Academy? You might be surprised.....
     
  10. They can't come up with a worst system, let's face it.

    If experience is anything to go by:
    I suspect they have a pretty good idea of what they want (it looks a bit like the early 1950's but in colour, with computers instead of teachers)
    I'm sure what we end up with will be far closer to what they already 'think' (I use that word advisedly) rather than anything that comes out of yet another shambolic 'consultation' exercise - the destruction of the ILEA in the 80s was a textbook example of what can be done with one of those.
    The Big Society agenda means devolving decision making to local communities as long as they want what the government wants, as long as Labour controlled LAs are reduced in influence, it reduces spending on the state sector and middle (and upwardly mobile) England can preserve the segregation of their children.
