Thank you Guy Claxton and Bill Lucas for breaking us out of the battery farm. Richard Gerver, author of Creating Tomorrow’s Schools Today. Good schools have always focused on ‘results plus’, helping children achieve their potential in examinations and at the same time developing confident and creative individuals who are keen to do their very best. The UK school system is in urgent need of reform. Educating Ruby teems with practical, evidence-based, inspiring ideas for teaching and learning, that will brighten the lives of over-tested students, stressed-out teachers and concerned parents.

It is widely agreed that learning science is important both as a training for the individual mind and as a necessary resource for life in a technological world. Yet science education continues to intimidate many teachers at the primary level and to disappoint many students at the secondary level. This book argues that the roots of dissatisfaction are to be found in three types of false assumptions that underlie the teaching of science - about the nature of science itself; about young people's learning; and about what constitutes valid, achievable and compatible educational goals. The main conclusions the author draws are, that a new approach to the education and training of science teachers is required; that a focus is needed on the fostering of "straight thinking" in the 11-14 age group; and that a prominent strand of scientific education for the 14-16 age group should consist of an analysis of current scientific controversies.
