I’m starting off this month’s education roundup with a rabble rousing post from Jade who blogs at Splogs. Jade is a teacher; she is also a woman from a working class background who, through the support and dedication of teachers in a system that allowed them to do their best for each individual child, went […]
And so we enter into a new year and with it thoughts of new beginnings and resolutions. For many of us our thoughts turn to exercise, shaving off those Christmas pounds and getting fit. So, I am starting off with a thought provoking post from Sonya Cisco over at The Ramblings of a Formerly […]

A month that signals new beginnings for thousands of parents and children around the country, as 4 […]

Hello and welcome to July’s BritMums Education Roundup.
