Worshipping at the altar of rapid progress | Steps in teaching and learning

Schools are worshipping at the altar of rapid progress.

The altar of rapid progress does not measure such moments. Moments that are extremely important to every child’s education but, abysmally, not as important in the eyes of the powers that set curriculums, that set tests, that push for ever more progress so that their country can climb into the hallowed halls of the PISA Top Five.
