In this controversial new book, Daisy Christodoulou offers a thought-provoking critique of educational orthodoxy. Drawing on her recent experience of teaching in challenging schools, she shows through a wide range of examples and case studies just how much classroom practice contradicts basic scientific principles. She examines seven widely-held beliefs which are holding back pupils and teachers: - Facts prevent understanding - Teacher-led instruction is passive - The 21st century fundamentally changes everything - You can always just look it up -We should teach transferable skills - Projects and activities are the best way to learn - Teaching knowledge is indoctrination. In each accessible and engaging chapter, Christodoulou sets out the theory of each myth, considers its practical implications and shows the worrying prevalence of such practice. Then, she explains exactly why it is a myth, with reference to the principles of modern cognitive science. She builds a powerful case explaining how governments and educational organisations around the world have let down teachers and pupils by promoting and even mandating evidence-less theory and bad practice. This blisteringly incisive and urgent text is essential reading for all teachers, teacher training students, policy makers, head teachers, researchers and academics around the world.

The performance of national education systems is a growing concern in many Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. This book focuses on the assessment of school performance in seven countries: England, France, Germany, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. The research questions include: Why are schools being judged? By what criteria? and How are they held accountable for their performance? Part I is comprised of five chapters which examine these issues, drawing on evidence from member countries. Chapter 1 looks at the pressures that have precipitated such changes and identifies some reasons for the current increased interest in the performance of schools as separate units. Chapter 2 examines the purposes of school evaluation, which are broadly categorized under accountability and school improvement. The main methods used for evaluating schools are examined in chapter 3. Followup steps taken after evaluation are described in the fourth chapter. The fifth chapter compares national approaches in terms of the reasons for evaluation and the use of different methods. Four key messages emerge: (1) objective, external assessment and "friendly" advice from those acquainted with the school are equally important; (2) performance indicators should be related to the quality of a school's education; (3) simply making schools accountable is insufficient to improve performance, but desirable in terms of transparency and democracy in education; and (4) build on the expertise and professionalism of teachers to develop an unthreatening but demanding climate of self-review in schools. Part 2 summarizes the school-evaluation process and its relationship to the education system as a whole in each of the participating countries. Each country summary includes case studies of schools that have recently been involved in evaluation procedures. (Contains 19 references.) (LMI)
