Long radio silence caused at least in part by working on this book!!
Quotes from some early reviews:
Murphy’s book is passionate but measured, forceful but not dogmatic. For a snapshot of Scottish schools in 2014, and where they may head in the future, there can be few better places to start.
Henry Hepburn, senior reporter, Times Educational Supplement Scotland
Well read and researched, he uses his extensive experience to lay out his case. It is very persuasive… a must read for every adult in Scotland.
Ken Cunningham, General Secretary School Leaders Scotland
The author’s passion for education, for schooling but most of all for children shone through on every page.
Eileen Prior, Executive Director, Scottish Parent Teacher Council
