IMPACT ON JOURNAL BY UNIVERSITY ACADEMICS

 

Academics from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside are making a major contribution to the journal of the College of Teachers, Education Today, with three articles in the March edition.

 

Editor Prof Trevor Kerry is a Research Fellow for the Schools of the Future project at the university’s International Education Leadership Centre (IELC), based at the Lincoln campus.

 

The vice-president of the College of Teachers, Prof Kerry began editing the journal in December. His inaugural article on the future of schools is joined by articles from Prof Angela Thody and Trevor Male, also of the IELC.

 

Prof Thody’s article raises the controversial issue of the role school governors should play in the community in the future and how their position has changed over the years. 

 

“The College of Teachers and its journal want teachers to become more pro-active in controlling their own professional destinies, rather than waiting for government to impose reforms on them,” said Prof Kerry.

 

Together with Prof Brent Davies, Prof Kerry researched the concept of the five-term school year which has raised controversy across the education world.
