Great article, revealing some critically important views on our education system, and what is possible. Alwyn Poole has developed a model that combines the best features of our state system with a common sense flexibility that enables the Trust schools to genuinely put students' needs first. (This used to be Tomorrow's School's "Paramount Principle" but has been sadly lost in stupid assessments, politics, in-fighting, league tables and various other distractors.) Villa's results speak for themselves. The thoughts he expresses in this article, truly reflected in his schools, are genuine, non-partisan and insightful. Our state system has been hugely damaged by decades of politicians who value nothing except statistically defined pseudo-success, and who have been motivated by the need to appear busy or to appease sectarian interests; little to do with teaching or learning. The current blind stupidity with partnership school closures is typical! With the new government's promise of a major overhaul in education, we can but hope that they are willing to remove their blinkers and allow it to be the work of a balanced and focused team of people who know and understand education. If this can happen, with leaders such as Alwyn at the helm, there just may be hope for our state system.
