ALL VIEWS ARE MY OWN

“Tarjinder is particularly keen to challenge the orthodoxies she sees in primary schools, arguing against “nurturing” approaches to challenging behaviour and anti-academic approaches to the content of education.

She has also written about her background and how attitudes to race have, in her experience, differed between the generations in her own family and between the different parts of this country that she has lived and worked in.

She has also discussed gender identities, particularly how they influence education, rejecting narratives about victimhood: “Straight-jacketing oneself into socially constructed gender stereotypes just so you can smear those who disagree with you and calling oneself a feminist to escape scrutiny or challenge is all very well. Just don’t be surprised when others see through this.”

“Her confused ramblings are appropriated by those who would like to attack more nuanced positions but find it easier to muddy the waters by pretending this is an insightful critique on poststructural discourse.”

“When you join a discussion on Twitter and you know she’s never far away, you get the feeling that postmen experience when they’re aware there’s a snappy dog somewhere behind one of the letterboxes. However, she’s always prepared to listen carefully to your arguments before she tells you that you’re wrong.”
