As reported in the news this week, Liz Beattie, a retired headteacher
and member of the Professional Association for Teachers, has called for
the term "failure" to be removed from schools' vocabularies in favour
of "delayed success". You and Yours (Radio 4, 12-1 daily) is having a
phone-in on this next Tuesday (26 July). They would like to interview
an expert on Monday the 25th about this topic. Has any research been
done on it? Have you done any such research?

Please get in touch with me asap if you think you might be interested,
or if you know someone who would be.
Many thanks
