There is universal agreement that education is facing a crisis, but the causes and solutions of the current difficulties have so far proved less susceptible to consensus. The public debate has generally focussed on the terms and conditions of employment, and the associated failure to introduce planned changes to curricula and assessment, as the keys to understanding the recent dispute and the wider problems facing education. However, this debate (like the current inquiry, given the terms of reference from the Secretary of State for Scotland), is unlikely to uncover all the underlying factors generating the current crisis.
