Recently I had shared an article that I had posted via LinkedIn that I had came across in the same space titled “Telling another teacher how to teach? It’s a sin, says leading academic“.
I will refrain from going in to depth about what the main points of the article were yet only to say that Prof. John Hattie basically sums up the importance for teachers, and leaders for that matter, to build professional cultures of trust within the school organisation to ensure that all teachers are learning, growing, and doing the best that they can for their their students. As important as I feel that this message is, and as much as I believe in it, I also firmly believe it is pure common sense. It should not take the likes of Hattie to spread this message. It should just be, ‘the way’, things are.
Unfortunately, it is not.
