What a heart warming story.

I didn’t see this when it was first on but via a friend on Facebook I saw this clip.

Fantastic – this is what teaching is about, not targets and grade this and that and all that…  This teacher changes this guy’s life!!

I defy you not to watch this without a tear in your eye.

    Spot on Graham–and unfortunately this kind of improvement and confidence doesn’t seem to be the things the bureaucrats and politicians are interested in. Here in Lancaster, a great school which is known for its success with those at the lower levels of academic ability, often with various mild learning difficulties and a host of barriers related to poverty, is to close. It’s such a blinkered decision, and the children they look after so well there, well, many of them will struggle intellectually, emotionally and socially in mainstream school.

    beautiful. finding other avenues to stimulate the brain, rather than rote memorization, is the correct approach. the power of music, art… here in the US, we’ve gotten stuck in ‘teaching to the test’. moving backwards at an astounding rate.
