Educational Reforms and BBC Radio Bristol

Well the new School year has started. Kids the length and breadth of the country take a deep intake of breath, pull on the school uniform and head back to School.

This year is different though. Love him or hate him, Michael Gove’s reforms are making an impact. From free school breakfasts (okay a Clegg initiative) through to tougher marking for GCSE and A levels, he has definitely left his mark.

Last week, I was asked by BBC Radio Bristol to take part in a discussion involving educationalists and head-teachers about whether these reforms were on the whole good or bad, and the growing role of tutoring in education. I was not there to blow the trumpet about Tutorhub, but to provide insight from the perspective of The Tutors Association.
