Where have you been, Dr Knight?

17th September 2004 at 01:00
Dr Christopher Knight is himself in a time-warp in peddling apparent divisions between teachers and academics (TES, September 3).

The gap between the two, previously substantial, has closed immensely in the past 10 years and this is a core feature of current education policy.

Indeed, collaboration between the two is a dynamic aspect of the development planning in many schools. To paraphrase Dr Knight, I do wonder just where he has been hanging around these past few years.
