Tony Little is The Head Master of Eton. One of the most progressive and imaginativepeople in British education today he has hitherto kept a low profile. This book, publishedto coincide with his retirement, sets out his educational fundamentals.There is a crisis in the British education system. Year on year GCSE and A Level pupilspost better exam results, with more students achieving top grades. Yet businessleaders and employers complain bitterly that our schools are not producing people fit forpurpose. Far from being locked in an ivory tower, a bastion of privilege, Mr Little hasused his time as a teacher and headmaster to get to grips with fundamental questionsconcerning education. He wants to produce people fit to work in the modern world. Howdo children absorb information? What kind of people does society need? What iseducation for? Not only is the author one of the great reforming headmasters of our timebut he has planted Academies in the East end of London, founded a state boardingschool near Windsor and yet is a passionate advocate of single sex schools.This book is not a text book for colleges of education - it is a book to enlighten theteaching profession and just as much for anxious parents. The book is simply arrangedunder topics such as authority, expectations, progress, self-confidence, sex, crises andcreativity.Tony Little thinks it is time to ask some fundamental questions, and to make bravedecisions about how we make our schools and our schoolchildren fit for purpose.
