LSS: Sammy Wright - Good and Clever

Description: ZOOM TALK - Sammy Wright

"Good and Clever"

Sammy Wright asks why we put such weight on exam results.

Sammy is a deputy headteacher of a large secondary school. He spends his days teaching students knowledge which will uplift and enrich them; he demands rigour and high standards, and he wants to help his students succeed in their exams. But why, he asks in this talk, do we elide success in exams with some moral quality? And why do we put such weight on exam results?

Sammy is a member of the Social Mobility Commission.

This talk was given on Radio 4 Fourthought earlier this year.
