My review of Inadequate by Priya Lakhani
My latest column for the TES on the unusual position independent schools are in between academic years.
I have written a column for the TES on the latest IB examinations, and the difficulties are causing students and schools. You can find it here.
This week 152 writers spoke out about the ‘cancel’ culture in Harper’s magazine. I had a problem with their use (or non-use) of language. I wrote about it The Critic.
Here is my latest article for The Critic, on decolonising the curriculum.
Here is a link to article I wrote for The Critic on teaching unions and their response to the Covid-19 crisis.
Here is a link to an article I wrote recently on how the Covid-19 pandemic could kill off significant sections of UK indpendenent schools. I argue that the UK government should step in to try to save such a significant employer (but probably won’t).
