The Business Plan
- As I work on my business plan we have Making the Grade which looks at the extent teachers are willing to go for a buck by falsifying exam results and a "Money for Marks" culture
- Do schools and colleges admit students to their college because they need the revenue admitting them provides, more than based on what's right for the student?
According to the program some heads encourage certain practices because there is more funding depending on league tables and Ofsted results. Or teachers who won't speak out for fear of losing their jobs.
- Universities are happy to go along with the government proposals and hike education fees up from £6,000 to £9,000.
If people want to argue that this is unavoidable we could question why universities welcome banks to freshers events with the full knowledge that the student loans and overdrafts will see students enter into adulthood saddled with debt.
- What if we looked at education conferences? Are organisers willing to accept a booking for exhibitions stands even if they know the product has a poor reputation within education?
How many exhibitors would there be if it was based on whether or not delegates wanted each supplier there?
- Given the expenses scandal, cash for questions and the amount peers charge for not ever turning up, I won't even bother looking at what the politicians who are responsible for education policy will do for money.

Tech Stories: The Next Chapter?
While there is a proof of concept in most of what I am trying to do, one way or another, some of the things I am trying are new...They are either new to me, new to educators or entirely new ideas and models.
