Robin Alexander, who directed the UK’s Cambridge Primary Review, has shared the findings of that major review of the primary grades. They are contained in this brief two-page statement, and I urge you to read them. Every one of them reflects our own discussions–from recognizing the influence of poverty on student performance in school to a proposal to abandon the misuse of testing and assessment.
I had planned to reproduce the two-page statement in its entirety, but every time I hit the “save” button, the whole thing disappeared. So I offer you the link and urge you to take the time to read this important and stimulating document.
