Teaching is just one of many systems which are out dated and lacking resources and investment, but this is not new as all are not fit for the 21st century, some more than others.
As with all systems for assume the ‘one fits all’ principle, which is so outdated and really was never correct. For everyone of us is an individual , but individuals are not recognised in any of the current systems as to have adaptable systems costs and we are told money is not available, but is that even true. For when finance is required for any pet project it is found. More than likely by removing finance which is desperately needed by its current project, but is deemed to be more importantly needed by the pet project.
Is the pet project really that important or is it just the favoured project of that moment in time and tomorrow a different pet project could arise on a political whim. That is not the way to proceed, but that is how it has been for many years, but just because it is so for many years does not make it correct.
Education needs to reform, but let the experts decide being those on the ground and not just teachers, but also parents and maybe even some children. We all need to work together and not just for the good of the many, but for the good of all.
In the interests of costs, schools have been allowed to become too large, as have class sizes, but is cost the only reason for the supply of teachers and teaching assistants are also in short supply.
The education of children has been tweaked in many ways over the years and not all tweaks have been really required if we consider quality, children’s needs and many other factors.
Also it is not just SEND which is underfunded, but the whole education programme and is the programme also correct.
Many factors are not right and these cause many problems including
children being left behind
children not being understood
creating problems not just at school but also at homes
and much more.
Will it be put right, I fear not and the rolling ball of insufficiency will continue.
