Observe as many others teachers as possible and try out aspects in your own teaching #ukedchat

#ukedchat Secondary schools do provide students with a lot of skills, but it is often a time of turmoil as children grow to adults.

Market forces distort educational values. No to PRP. Yes to fostering a spirit of collaboration not competition among teachers #ukedchat
