The original Education Monkey blog (educationmonkey.blogspot.co.uk) was a comment on current issues in education. What the reader got out of it largely depended on their political standpoint. This blog is wholly different. Drawing on lengthy experience in teaching, school leadership, inspection, teacher training and consultancy, the purpose is, as the name suggests, to lighten the load of classroom teachers. Upcoming posts will simply address key issues of effective teaching by offering thoughts and advice that may be of help to those colleagues who are not quite so far along the road. Comments are welcome, questions will be answered, thoughtless remarks will be ignored.
The intention is only to offer advice, guidance and support. Over time there will be links to downloadable resources. Political comment has no place here – you can find that in the other Education Monkey blog!
