Daisy Christodoulou is the Research and Development Manager at Ark Schools, where she works on new approaches to curriculum and assessment. Before that, she trained as a secondary English teacher through the Teach First programme and taught in two London comprehensives. Her book, Seven Myths about Education, was published in March 2014. She has been part of government commissions on the future of ITT and assessing without levels.
