The Learning Game
‘Michael Barber is one of the most stimulating thinkers in British education today… Above all, Michael Barber speaks with a passion for the educational opportunities of all Britain’s children. We need more people like him and more books like this one.‘
‘No vision of the educational good could be more all-encompassing than the “learning society” he sets before us in this book. Nobody could be more energetic and imaginative in charting the steps we need to take if that vision is to be realized’
CHRIS WOODHEAD, New Statesman
TESSA BLACKSTONE, Times Literary Supplement
Education, long near the top of the agenda, became the main battleground of British politics during the 1997 General Election, with Tony Blair declaring that the three priorities for his new government would be EDUCATION, EDUCATION AND EDUCATION’. The day after the election Michael Barber, Professor at the Institute of Education in the University of London, was appointed to head the new Standards and Effectiveness Unit in the Department for Education and Employment, a move which confirmed his position as one of the country’s leading educationalists. In this updated edition of THE LEARNING GAME he surveys how British education has reached its current state and proposes radical and far-sighted solutions to its problems.
