Democracy at work, education that isn’t

That “Minister rejects plan to start lessons at six” is unsurprising given how such people so stubbornly refuse to loosen their grip on the fates of the millions of teachers and students in their power.

This is yet another reason, in our opinion, why control of education needs to be removed from the clutches of politicians. Politicians after all care about power, votes and perceptions. They don’t care about education for its own sake so they are not well-placed to making decision in the interests of others.

The alternative is not privatisation, however, as this leaves the vulnerable and disadvantaged to the whims of the free market. What is required is an independently governed, free for all, liberal and sympathetic system of education that promotes well-being not ideology and partisanship.
