Kids don’t need SATs

Have you ever heard anyone say “I’m no good at maths” ? Do you ever stop to wonder where they picked that up from? An exam? Or an adult’s opinion off the back of an test? We talk about maths as if it’s some sort of binary – either you’re good at it or you’re not. But that’s not the way the world works. Not with maths, art, basketball, or playing the ukulele. Practice, interest, seeing it, tiny advantages on top of advantages…

I’m supporting this campaign to boycott SATs tests in primary schools.
