What to do less, what to do more?

I read an article in TODAY, Teach less, learn more – have we achieved it?
Teach less, learn more?
I would be happy if teachers learnt how to talk less and ensure that their students learnt more.
Even better, test less learn more.
Reducing syllabi or curricula is not going to make a difference if teachers still rely only on the tools of talk in one hand and tests in the other.
It is time to arm them with something else. It is time to have fewer central policies and more ownership. It is time to provide less structure and scaffolding and more professionalism and innovation.
