The lesson to be learnt from a quarter of a century of resisting standardised testing is that educational and pedagogical issues must drive campaigning. Teachers must work together to re-establish confidence in their own ability to control the curriculum and what is offered to our children. This can only be a collective enterprise and teachers must find the spaces, literally and metaphorically, to work out how to do so. Enlisting the support of parents, researchers and academics needs to be central to their actions – as must be their willingness to see the assault on children and their education as part of the wider, ideological drive toward marketisation, privatisation and individualism.
