Ancient Athens[ edit ] Athenian democracy developed in the 6th century BC out of what was then called isonomia equality of law and political rights.
Achievement in our schools 78 [page 3] Foreword by the Secretary of State This, the first White Paper of the new Government, is as much about equipping the people of this country for the challenge of the future as it is about the Government's core commitment to equality of opportunity and high standards for all.
Partnership for change means commitment from everyone: Valuing our teachers and celebrating success go hand in hand with raising expectations and then acting to fulfil them.
Everyone has a part to play. Children begin to learn about the world from the moment they are born. Families are the first teachers, helped by health visitors and others. At school, the caretaker and the school dinner lady, the school secretary and the classroom assistant are all part of the team.
In seeking the widest possible consultation through the summer and into the autumn, acting on that consultation and legislating where necessary to achieve our objectives, we wish to continue the process of creating a new culture in this country.
We want to change attitudes towards education and foster a realisation that education matters to everyone. To overcome economic and social disadvantage and to make equality of opportunity a reality, we must strive to eliminate, and never excuse, under-achievement in the most deprived parts of our country.
Educational attainment encourages aspiration and self-belief in the next generation, and it is through family learning, as well as scholarship through formal schooling, that success will come.
We are talking about investing in human capital in the age of knowledge. To compete in the global economy, to live in a civilised society and to develop the talents of each and every one of us, we will have to unlock the potential of every young person.
By doing so, each can flourish, building on their own strengths and developing their own special talents.
We must overcome the spiral of disadvantage, in which alienation from, or failure within, the education system is passed from one generation to the next. To succeed we need the commitment, imagination and drive of all those working in our schools and colleges, if we are to set aside the doubts of the cynics and the corrosion of the perpetual sceptics.
We must replace the culture of complacency with commitment to success. That is why, in offering a "can do" Government, we are asking for a "can do" profession. We are placing great emphasis in the months ahead on getting initial teacher training right: Resources are not the sole answer to delivering our objectives, but we do recognise that an end to cut-backs and a commitment to supporting best practice are crucial to success.
The Government's first Budget was our first step in fulfilling the pledge that a greater share of national income should be spent on education. It was a sign of our commitment to education and our determination to deliver our standards agenda.
Priority is indeed being given to education, to employability and to investment for the future. This is a partnership between Government and the education service, between LEAs and schools, parents and school governors.
I ask you to join with us in using your own creativity to answer as well as ask questions. In this way we can work together to meet the challenge and to attain the solution. I ask you to join with us in making the crusade for higher standards a reality in every classroom and every household in the country.
Together we can do it. David Blunkett [page 5] By At the end of each chapter is a summary of what we aim to achieve over the lifetime of this Parliament by putting our proposals in place. All the summaries are brought together here.
There will be a greater awareness across society of the importance of education and increased expectations of what can be achieved. Standards of performance will be higher. Our overall approach to policy will be underpinned by six principles: High quality education for all 4 year-olds whose parents want it.
An early years forum in every area, planning childcare and education to meet local needs. A network of early excellence centres to spread good practice. Effective assessment of all children starting primary schools.
Class sizes of 30 or under for 5, 6 and 7 year-olds. At least an hour each day devoted to both literacy and numeracy in every primary school. National guidelines and training for all primary teachers on best practice in the teaching of literacy and numeracy. A great improvement in achievements in maths and English at the end of primary education, to meet national targets.
Each school will have its own challenging targets to raise standards, and will be held responsible for achieving them.Although generally most of the UK National Lottery winners made the most of their good fortune and enjoy the best thing in life, there are several noteworthy examples of people who failed.
