I have been around the ‘change education’ discussion for a while now. I have argued for changes. I have heard the myriad of grand visions of changers and edu-pundits, waded through the ocean of cliches and (mostly) flowery visions pretty much lambasting the status quo of mainstream schooling. And for the record, I have never been terribly comfortable in a mainstream school for a number of reasons.
But just what would you say to a kid (and their parent) who is thriving in the current mainstream educational system so many (of us) are trying to change?
(Because millions of kids do just that)
Over to you … thanks.
