Much ink has been spilt over the problem with education, but, in brief, here is the problem: Most, if not all of the misery in British schools, is caused by a lack of feedback (i.e. of reality) getting to the right people at the right time, whether pupil, parent, leader or teacher. English schools are adapt at avoiding reality (in cahoots with the DfE, MATs and other stakeholders) through the following means: League tables Ofsted Exam results (for qualifications whose academic integrity is, at best, diminished, if not wholly disintegrated) Cultures of victimhood Teacher-blaming (particularly for behaviour) Attributing misbehaviour, stupidity or downright wickedness to pseudo-scientific causes or syndromes And many others Each of these is a variety of decorating a form of excretion. The hard reality of learning - which requires asceticism and dedication - and which, hitherto, has only been achieved by a relative few is almost forgotten. Rather, the ideal and content of education has been abandoned in favour of vacuous forms of inclusion, which abandon unskilled pupils to the harsh feedback of the adult world, when they find they are unemployable and miserable. Who's responsible for this? All those who conspire with the continuance of this system.
