First of all, thanks for visiting; I hope this blog sows the seeds of further thought and discussion. If I get too pompous, or if the language gets too convoluted and flowery, please tell me.
I am a teacher who cares deeply about the children I teach and I am a fan of traditional education and its methods. I’d like children to have choices in life and to enjoy intellectual pursuit for its own sake. I’m following these educational establishments, publications and people: WLFS, Wilshaw, Gove, Michaela Community School, Andrew Old, David Didau, Hattie, ED Hirsch, Campaign for Real Education and the Reading Reform Foundation.
