Cambridge Primary Review: government would do well to heed these child-centred recommendations

23rd October 2009 at 01:00

I appreciated Michael Shaw's editorial in The TES as a first step into reading more of the Cambridge Primary Review ("Intrepid prof takes on The Primary Code", October 16). I did wonder, however, whether the sub- headline "Politicians may dismiss the Cambridge Review, but it is a must- read for teachers" may indeed add encouragement for politicians to do just that. We should push our elected representatives to consider the difficult options, and not just the easy ones.
