‘No formal testing and bilingual 7-year-olds equipped to change the world? Yes please’ - Debra Kidd

Author and education guru Dr Debra Kidd has written a piece for Teachwire.net reflecting upon the lessons learned from her recent trip to Singapore, where she compared the testing culture of the UK’s education system to the more holistic curriculum model used in international schools that are more ‘steeped in moral purpose and crafted with care’.
