Looking for an educational outpost ...
In the criminal wasteland of the education system lays an outpost separated from the maelstrom of the system. This outpost lacks form, feature or firmament, many have forgotten its existence, some wretched souls never knew of it and others still cling onto past memories.
The outpost still remains, in the hearts of those who do what they do in spite of the demands of the system. Pioneers who live for the needs of their students, unfettered by targets, tables and standards set by those who know nothing of what is really worthwhile.
Educational pioneers working at all levels, under the cover of normal, never worried what others think. Only concerned that their students will acquire the knowledge, understanding and insight that will ensure that they are of actual value.
Able to transcend the ‘qualification’ and transmit the culture, open to new ideas and free to express how it is all done.
My only concern is that when you try to encourage others to enjoy time in the outpost, they react with fear and retreat back into the wasteland where nothing is ever taught and seldom learnt.
