Pupils can now have their say on the future of school exams
Is the current exam system as good as it could be? Do schools really give young people the education that they need? Who decides how it works the best? And do the people who decide actually care what young people think?Well now you can have your say. The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) is leading some asking young people's opinion what they think.
The QCA wants to hear the views of young people aged 11 and over. Through an online survey they can easily contribute their thoughts about how they are taught and how they can learn better. The results will feed into research behind the new Diplomas and inform a series of consultations with young people in early 2009.
This is a great new opportunity to show the value of youth participation at the heart of the educational system. Please pass it on!
