Opportunity knocks for school leaders in 2015!
I have to confess that we don’t have a crystal ball at The Key, so looking at what’s in store for schools in 2015 seemed a tough brief. When I started to think about the term ahead, though, I realised I’ve been lucky enough to hear from some influential people from the education policy world who’ve tried to do just this.
May’s general election won’t be fought on education, according to Jonathan Simons, the head of education at Policy Exchange. When Jonathan spoke to The Key’s staff, he said the election would be fought on the “four ‘E’s: the Economy, Europe, Ed (Miliband) and Englishness”.
But this doesn’t mean we’re in for a quiet year; schools will be facing some real challenges in the terms ahead.
