Do schools kill curiosity? (link at bottom!)
All of our work at Permanent Education CIC is about encouraging children to ask questions as part of everyday teaching and learning – so it is always useful to read this about this research.
It is good to see the recognition and empathy that teachers are busy so can’t always teach in the way they want to – so we endorse the call for systematic change. It is not fair to expect teachers to provide the answers for a system that doesn’t support all pupils to flourish and doesn’t want curious children to ask questions.
However, we do know that the teachers who take part in our training tell us that it helps them fall back in love with their jobs again. #p4c #permanenteducation #4Csthinking
