Quote of the week

Quote of the Week

Helping each student to acquire a genuine humility and curiosity for life, and become grounded in their own deepest identity, rather than learning to give the ‘right’ answers is a priceless quality of education and one which is often lacking in the factory education systems of today."

Sir Anthony Sheldon, The Fourth Education Revolution (2018)
