Are educational standards rising or falling? it's a question frequently asked by parents and employers and just as frequently criticised by members of the teaching profession who feel that the arguments used to support both sides are often based on inadequate and inaccurate information.
Barry Turner examines some of the current methods of assessing standards and asks whether our de. mands for ' proof ' of good teaching are likely to lead to satisfactory conclusions or to the sort of testing mania that has swept the United States, leaving in its wake strikes, lawsuits and confusion about the aims of education.

David Edgar's award-winning play, specially adapted for radio by the author. With Terence Rigby as Dennis Turner
The death of a Conservative MP results in a by-election in a West Midlands town. The election campaign, between the major parties, at first follows a familiar pattern. But the intervention of an extreme right-wing racialist party, and a strike by Asian foundry-workers, which becomes an election issue, drives the campaign towards a bitter and violent climax.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
