On the teacher’s educational role


“ …the fundamental role of a teacher is not to deliver information (which starts to become obsolete the moment it’s left our mouths). Rather, a teacher’s role is to guide the social process of learning – to inspire, challenge and excite students so that they actually want to learn and develop the thinking skills they’ll need in the real world ”

Eddie Woo, ‘Raising a child is mission impossible. That’s why it takes a school’, The Guardian
