John Bald: Groupthink by publishers results in dire school textbooks

John Bald is a former Ofsted inspector and has written two books on the history of writing and spelling.

The Conservative Education Society reached a high point in its current revival with a meeting with Secretary of State, Justine Greening, last week at the House of Lords. Forty or so members attended, including councillors with education portfolios, headteachers, the occasional old-stager, and our  talented young committee members. Chatham House rules do not prevent me from saying that Justine Greening gave detailed answers to each of our questions, and took notes. Tickets are available for the next meeting, on “Textbooks, why are they so dreadful and what can be done about it,”with Tim Oates of Cambridge Assessment, and Robert Peal, of West London Free School.
