What do people say about ASPE ?

Here is what some ASPE members have said :

ASPE members include cutting edge writers and researchers of national and international repute, classroom practitioners, university teachers, LA advisers and consultants.

This broad membership has a strong feel-good factor, and ASPE conferences have a buzz which is bracing and invigorating.

It views teachers as reflective practitioners who are constantly engaged in a process of study and critical evaluation of all that passes for change and innovation in primary education.

The distinctiveness of ASPE lies in its shared beliefs and values about teachers and children.
