Are our schools fit for purpose?

I see that the Times is advertising an event at Wilton's Music Hall in London. The discussion starts at 7pm on 8 March with Michael Gove, Estelle Morris and others to consider whether our schools are fit for purpose...

I suppose it makes you ask what are our schools for and what should we expect from these places of learning? Do we expect enough or do we expect too much? Is it asking too much if we demand world class outcomes in places where every child is a reader, every child is a brilliant learner. Interestingly the evidence suggests that if we simply made our best practice consistent we'd crack it.

Could be an interesting session at Wilton's Music Hall. Wish I could be there!
