English in Education: Current National Issues - a paper by the Common English Forum

Posted by hl11 at Mar 19, 2015 02:55 PM |

The Common English Forum published today a list of their concerns about English in Education at all levels.

What are our concerns? We believe that good English teaching is under threat for a number of reasons. The pace of change in education in recent years has been considerable and seems set to continue. Much teaching and learning is at present being driven chiefly by what can be assessed and is distorted by the pressures of accountability, rather than being shaped by what is educationally desirable for pupils.

The complete paper can be found here and on the Forum's website https://commonenglishforum.wordpress.com/news-events/english-in-education-current-national-issues/
