Educating Ruby

As Robin Alexander states, students will not learn to think for themselves if their teachers are expected merely to do as they are told.

Bill Lucas and Guy Claxton are calling for changes in education which need your support.  Instead of constantly worrying about tests and assessments, students need to build their confidence, develop curiosity, work in collaboration with others, use communication effectively, be creative, show commitment to their learning and develop craftsmanship.  Seven Cs are highlighted in a book entitled ‘Educating Ruby‘  written by Guy Claxton and Bill Lucas.  In the book, the authors make suggestions about how change in schools may come about.  This must be a cause worth helping.
