Provoking thoughts about education #5: Free yourself

Twenty seconds to really make you think – #5: Free yourself

Provocative quote number 5. This 20 second video really makes you stand back and take stock of your role as an educator. From John Holt’s ‘How Children Fail’.

Feel free to share with your team to start the conversation..

‘Only when teachers in schools free themselves from their traditional teacher tasks – boss, cop, judge – will they be able to learn enough about their students to see how best to be of use to them.’

[John Holt, (1964) ‘How Children Fail’: Penguin, Page 36]
