“Slow Education is sweeping through schools in England” Sunday Times March 15th 2015

Are you a teacher or head of a school who feels testing has gone too far? Do you wonder about life after levels? We within the Slow Education movement believe we are at a critical moment. There is a need to reclaim the importance of quality, creative teaching which enables students to think independently and cope with the challenges of life today.

We accept the need for exams and qualifications but it is a question of degree. We work with schools who are developing their own, deeper vision of what great teaching looks like. We create networks of like-minded schools, giving them support and linking them with academics who can do project-based research within their classrooms.

    Music to my ears. We are indeed at an exciting time where teachers can remind themselves why they became teachers!

    I like the idea of enjoying the very process of learning and acquiring knowledge at a slower pace (not necessarily slow pace).

    Learning takes place from young and it should grow in its natural space and time and not force fed to shout growth!

    Let’s take education to greater heights by taking slower steps…:)

    I had this idea in my mind for the past 4 years and couldn’t explain to people to start it with me… I’m so glad to have come across this movement. I definitely support it and now that I am able to show this video to others, I’m sure I’ll be able to implement it in my school too.. FINALLY!
