A Postscript

Thank you Stephen Dinham.

I have just read The Conversation – Why We Are Never Satisfied with Teachers

THIS is why I felt so bad after the ACER conference. Whilst I am a great proponent of the continually improving teacher practitioner, it was the message that I basically had to be perfect to be considered ‘good’ that depressed me. There was a deficit model in play, instead of a developmental one.

I think I can move on now.


More power to you!
