The Great Education Controversy: your schools - Ray Bryant
 
Book Information
 

Full Description:


In The Great Education Controversy the author raises and comments on issues arising from the changes made to schools since the 1944 Act with the intention of bringing people to question what we have and to ask if it is what they want.
Qualifying as a graduate, with a post graduate Certifi cate in Education, and subsequently obtaining his masters degree in Psychology, Ray Bryant taught in newly established comprehensive schools in London, moved to Essex, as a deputy head, where he assisted with the amalgamation of two secondary modern schools to establish the King Edmund School in Rochford, eventually serving as the head teacher of the Eastbourne Comprehensive School in Darlington for nearly fourteen years.

Arising out of the militant actions of teachers’ trade unions during the 1970s, together with Colin Leicester, he co-founded the Professional Association of Teachers, now known as VOICE the union for education professionals. Claiming, that even after some 60 years of educational reforms, there are still matters which need to be addressed, among them questions relating to comprehensive education, selection, pupil and student discipline, teaching methods, school tests and examinations, what is taught, the purpose of education and teacher professionalism.
