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

"There is an inherent belief in the right of the child to a childhood full of play and discovery, but this is not discovery-led learning."

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’.
