I’ve been a bit busy lately, and haven’t posted. Also, I’m a bit short of things to say.
Just about the only good thing to be happening at the moment (PGCE wise at least) is that tomorrow is my last French evening class, so its back to home study until the intensive course begins next month. I’ve enjoyed the classes, but I’ve missed the time I could have spent at home with Mister Meanor (my OH), as I’m very aware of how busy I’ll be next year. I’m not enjoying the waiting – I have things in pipelines, but I have to wait for responses from letters, for the ‘right’ time to go house hunting, and as a consequence I’ve nothing exciting to say, at least not anything education related.
I did think about wading in on the failing schools story, but I think that’s been pretty well canvassed everywhere. Local authorities with grammar schools have failing comprehensives and the government has ignored it’s own contextual value added measurement in favour of using raw GCSE results. There’s very little more to say on the subject.
Perhaps I need some inspiration… I’ll be back soon, hopefully with something interesting to say.
