The death of former BBC education correspondent Mike Baker leaves the teacher community much the poorer. Like the great Ted Wragg, Mike Baker was a champion of teachers and schools. At a time when those in authority are wont to blame teachers and students for the ills of society and to denigrate their hard work and dedication, schools will deeply miss his balanced and informed opinion. Mike Baker was a champion of learning and a supporter of children and their schools. He was interested in the success of Citizenship education and understood its ambition and the challenges it faces.
Chris Waller, ACT Professional officer writes ' Mike was always there to ask an opinion of or to request advice. His thorough knowledge of education and schools provided many a wise reflection.' A full appreciation of the life of Mike Baker can be found on the BBC website
