"Today, education is still primarily concerned with promoting economic growth," argues Nienke van Atteveldt in this interview. "This focus has profoundly shaped assessments and the way most education systems work, which is to emphasise individual test scores. This is not the...

This short post excepts from a paywalled Wall Street Journal article setting out the talking points for the current round of education reform advocacy. "The government will spend nearly $250,000 on each of her children. Yet she won't have much of a say in how the dollars are spent. Without her consent, the bureaucrats who run the public schools will build...

"One might argue that it has become quite vogue to position yourself as anti-tech, tech sceptical or critical when it comes to digital technology in education," writes Neil Mosley.

This is interesting: "Our development and business focus is now entirely the educational use cases for Pressbooks, with about 90% of our revenues coming from higher ed institutions who make PB available to their faculty to create, adapt, and deliver digital textbooks/resources,...
