We must start recognising greatness in teachers. We must link student success directly to the role of teachers. We must also understand how to provide rigorous education, and to provide ongoing professional development.
Teaching and Learning
While online education has its benefits, the real, long-term good of the schooling system would be best-served by investing in developing a world-class teacher cohort for in-person schools that are rooted in and integrally serving their communities.
Despite societal changes and an increased understanding of how best we learn, the way that teaching and learning takes place in most schools remains the same. Schools recognise this, but may not have the flexibility, time, energy or resources to do something about it.
