The latest report from a Longitudinal Study of Young People in England by the Department for Education contains some heartening news for all involved in the development of young people. The report has a focus on 13 to 14 year olds and shows a very positive picture of secondary education today.

The Times Education Supplement has selected some interesting headlines which  include, 71% of year 9 pupils think that discipline in their schools is about right, only 32% (down from 55%) have tried alcohol and 93% agree that school work is worth doing. It's not all roses young people from deprived backgrounds tend to be less positive about education but the report does show progress from a decade ago and confirms that the professionalism and hard work of our schools is having an impact. For more information see the full report.
