Promotional Information

Like the good philosopher of education that he is, John White poses penetrating questions about the methods of examining pupils' achievement. The answers he teases out reveal a picture far less satisfactory than education ministers would have us believe. The book is a must-read for all who are unhappy about the impact of our education system on our children and who wish to see it improved. -- Professor Peter Mortimore Professor of Education at the University of Southern Denmark This is a significant and unique book, not only because it analyses the examination system from historical and philosophical perspectives, but also because it presents alternatives that are more positive and oriented to the future. This call for a new vision of how the needs of tomorrow's society might be met and why the examination system has persisted, addresses the important hope for students to be equipped to lead personally flourishing lives. -- Professor Val Klenowski Professor of Education, Queensland University of Technology
