Cambridge Primary Review – 2 quotes

“For the past two decades English primary schools have been expected to conform to a state theory of learning …based on the idea that a national curriculum, repeated high stakes testing of pupils and mandated pedagogy in literacy and numeracy will raise standards… There is little doubt that the machinery of surveillance and accountability makes it difficult for schools to deviate from focusing on test performance.”

“Dialogue is the antithesis of a state theory of learning and its antidote”

Cambridge Primary Review, 2010
