I love this quote. I love that each individual child is so unique and different inside and out. It’s strange that we have such a wealth of knowledge based on children and how they learn. Yet the curriculum leaves teachers with little time to explore topics and the pressure of getting children to ‘meeting’ ‘greater depth’ or even deciding that a child is just always going to be ‘developing.’
Wouldn’t it be nice to just spend time with your class to really watch them grow and achieve at a rate that suits them? If children really learn at their own rate, then why do we push them so much to understand something there and then?
I am hoping that soon the education system changes to fit the child, so that we no longer need to ‘fit’ the child into the system.
I have a feeling that this is such a big U.K. problem.
Anyone from other countries feel free to comment I would love to hear your thoughts!
