By Diverse Means: the Commission on School Reform

Am off to Edinburgh shortly for the launch of By Diverse Means - the report of the Commission for School Reform, at Dynamic Earth. Keir has been chairing this group for the last year and they've come up with some radical, far-reaching ideas.

The report is a profound and thoughtful document, with 125 pages of evidence-backed analysis of where and how Scotland's education system has failed to combat disadvantage. It offers 37 sepcific recommendations, plus just over a page of Executive Summary for readers in a hurry. It will be widely available by PDF as well as in printed form, but I can't upload it here: I'm sure I'd get into trouble if I used the copy sitting on my hard drive before the embargo:) I expect it will be on Reform Scotland's website soon. (Reform Scotland is one of the two think tanks behind the Commission.)

It's good to see that the BBC has picked up the story already: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-21643568 - and trailed it also on its UK pages. Keir will be on Good Morning Scotland (radio) and TV later in the day. It's good to see the publicity momentum beginning to build.
