Schools are farms not factories
Heather Wells is the principle of a Co Ed 4-18 Independent College in a very traditional education context and a struggling economy. She trained and started her career in the UK as teacher and school administrator with a specialization in management in Education and in Special and Inclusive Education.
Heather believes education is about learning for tomorrow not just for exams and where individuals are seen and heard, where learning to learn is a process and individual skills and talents are recognized and exploited.
I asked Heather:
just how possible she believes it is for Wonderfully Wired kids to thrive in conventional schools.
What shifts she believes teachers and schools can make to really foster inclusive classrooms
and how she would encourage parents of Wonderfully Wired kids go about advocating for their kids.
