Size reform is all about money

5th March 2004 at 00:00
Classes of 75-90 is a workload reform suggested by the Department for Education and Skills. The only reason it has been suggested is to save money.

This is not teaching, it is learning management - simply crowd control. How exactly will it free teachers to give more individual support?

I care passionately about the right of each child to a decent education.

This reform is the last thing pupils and parents need. It is time for teachers and their unions to say, "Enough is enough."
