Ian Gilbert’s There is Another Way: The second big book of independent thinking shares inspirational ideas from a number of contributors intended to inspire educators to do what they know is right – regardless of the pressures from above.
We are living at a time when loud voices from inside and outside the profession are telling teachers and school leaders ‘this’ is the way education should be done. This is how you should lead a school. This is how you should manage a class. This is how children should learn. This is what you should do to make children behave. These messages are given as if there is only one way to achieve these things – their way.
This book is for educators everywhere who know that children deserve something better.
