Tony Blair was not directly nominated by Sir Kiel Starmer, but his presence dominated the conference speech – and not as much as the education section.
“Education is very important and I want to say it three times,” said Sir Cair.
Blair’s bold reference to his famous catchphrase marked a change in educational policy during the Corbin era.
When Jeremy Corbyn was the leader of the Labor Party, the party entered the general election with a promise to leave Offsted.
On the other hand, Sir Cair lamented the fact that more than 200,000 children were raised in an area where no primary school was rated “good” or “excellent” by The Watchtower. To fix it, he promised “the most ambitious school improvement plan of this generation”.
During the Corbyn era, Labor was often accused of “capturing” education providers and policies that were cunning but perhaps not very appealing to unions, from getting rid of the Sat exam in elementary school to graduating from college. He was lifted. For my parents. This policy is underscored by this lack of speech.
The government’s shattered education record during the pandemic hit Sir Kiel in a very modest way. Workers have criticized Tori for everything from reversing Covid to not having enough money to pursue education.
In his speech he combined education with other topics. For example, accepting the importance of meaningful work and the possibilities of new technologies. Education is called ‘to be able to work’, he said, schools produce ‘balanced youth’ with ‘practical life skills’.
This means giving children the opportunity to participate in after-school activities such as music, theater, and sports (another way to immerse themselves in the Tories). It also means a desire for “digital skills,” and Sir Cair says it is as important as the three Rs, the “fourth” pillar of education.
Sir Kiel’s focus on competence can capitalize on the widespread feeling that our education system is not functioning. With strict curricula, “test factory” schools drive away youth who do not have the tools to thrive. This of course meant a waiver of the legitimacy of the Tory upbringing. Since Michael Gove became Minister of Education, “knowledge” has been king and “ability” has become a dirty word.
However, skeptics will wonder whether digital skills should really be included in the curriculum.
As many parents have witnessed, young “digital locals”, whether formally trained or not, are often younger than their parents when it comes to technology.
