hi, my friends have been saying the 30 marker could be on globalisation, social class or ethnicity because apparently they haven’t come up much/in a while (:

Here's an essay plan - it's most likely not that good but it's all I could do - plus it's tailored to me so some stuff isn't expanding on because I already get it.

Applying material from Item B and your knowledge, assess the impact of globalisation on education policy in the UK - 30 marks

P1 - INTERNATIONAL RANKINGS - PISA TESTING
PISA League Tables - Allows for international comparison - lead to emphasis on certain subjects - Rishi Sunak introducing maths till 18 to compete with countries e.g. Singapore - raises standards as every school is compared.

P2 - ADOPTION OF FREE SCHOOLS- SWEDEN
Gove introduced free schools - copying Sweden - Kelly pointed out that countries have differences and integrating certain polices may be a sign that countries, in this case the UK cannot deal with local issues.

P3 - UNDERACHIEVEMENT OF BOYS IN SCHOOL
‘Mac en Ghail’ ‘Crisis in masculinity’ globalisation has led to a decline in manufacturing jobs - less opportunities for boys - underachievement.

Due to lack of manufacturing jobs education changed to give more opportunity and serve the economy E.g. BTEC, School till 18, T-LEVELS, Apprenticeships
Increase in multi-culture and decrease in ethnocentric curriculums.

P4 - GLOBALLY CONNECTED INTERNET
Growth of the Internet offering them new ways of accessing info - schools now have at home learning - could have been furthered by Covid e.g. lectures now often lecture from home.

TECH - Resources e.g. Hegarty maths, Online Learning e.g. homeschool, cover teachers, Private Tutoring e.g. privatisation of education, Safeguarding issues e.g. online bulling and radicalisation.

INCREASE IN MIGRATION - BIGGER EMPHASISE ON RE AND ASIAN LANGUAGES LIKE CHINESE TO HELP BRITISH GREW INTO THEIR EXPANDING ECONOMY WHICH IS ON WAY TO BE BETTER THAN AMERICAS.
