“Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.”
James A. Garfield
How can the system of public education become uncompromisingly learner-centered? This question will guide our journey together on this blog. The foundational principle is that context matters a whole lot when creating solutions to education issues. Since the Committee of 10 in the1890’s education practitioners have been told what they should do to make their profession better. It has become so silly that practitioners forget that the biggest store of knowledge about education resides in their experiences. The people interacting with learners everyday know the context of their school, of their community and of their learners. Let them develop programs and practices that allow the system of education to become uncompromisingly learner-centered.
How will you become learner-centered?
