(PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Core of Education steps inside Parliament for a rare video interview with Baroness Estelle Morris of Yardley, Former Secretary of State for Education in England. Baroness Morris covers a range of topics including her thoughts on what it's like to be a teacher today in Great Britain, education reform, the challenges facing that reform movement and why the education message is often a mixed one. Join Baroness Morris and Dr. Berger as they chat education, from the inside out.
Estelle Morris is a life peer and pro-vice-chancellor of the University of Sunderland. She writes a monthly column for Guardian Education. With Dr. Berger, she dives into the disjuncture between policy makers and educators, whether teachers in the U.K. today are better than any before, why she's optimistic about the progress being made in education, and speaks to the give-take between teachers and government.
"Estelle's insights into education reform seem deeply connected to teacher's wants and needs", said Dr. Berger, He continued, "Her drive to close gaps in social and class based education inequalities are vital issues warranting global policy discussion today."
Also discussed are bridging the communication gap between educators and students, how children use time and space differently than their predecessors, and how politicians and teachers value of evaluations differs radically.
