Wrong audience, Mr Tate

Tes Editorial

Nicholas Tate (TES, April 9) gives us his views on learning for "those who have to make hard choices, at national level, about the construction of a curriculum and, at a local level, about its conversion into schemes of work." As is common in such discussions he misses the very people his remarks should be addressed to: teachers and publishers.

Without their understanding and implementation his comments are merely an intellectual battle between academics. We need less of the central control he implies if standards are to rise.
