Every child has their own story...
In this section of the 'Blue Man Group - CNN's the Next list' youtube clip Sir Ken Robinson comments again that the way to improve education as a system is not to standardise it but to personalise and customise it, because in the end every child has their own story!
I see my challenge as a school leader as providing the environment where our staff team have the skills and desire to 'personalise' and 'customise' our local school curriculum with the enriching contexts that the wider curriculum provides and not just let the focus be dominated by the concepts of reading, writing and maths! What do you think? Will the pressure on our public system become to great and will we end up opening our own 'Blue School'?
