About the series

Education is at the heart of the UK's national debate. While the news and political agendas discuss curriculum changes, quality, assessment and regulation, conventional views about the best way to teach are being challenged by a quiet revolution of disruptive thinking.

The Educators is an eight-part series about the way we teach and learn, and will explore the ideas of people whose influence extends from students to governments. Is there a proven model for good schools and teaching? Can potential be unlocked in any student, at any age? Do we value and measure the most important skills? And can children be the best teachers of other children?

Sarah Montague speaks to inspiring leaders and thinkers, to examine how their beliefs have been shaped by experience, their impact on tutors, students or parents, and the effect they're having on the future of education.
