Flipping the Educational System: putting teachers at the heart of teaching (FORUM 2)
Author: RENÉ KNEYBER
This article describes an initiative led by two classroom teachers from the Netherlands to put teachers back at the centre of the educational process. The article argues that the educational system has become inverted, with those who are most influential (teachers) having the least opportunity to influence. The challenge is to ‘flip the system’ so that government and school leaders throughout the system are focused on supporting teachers.
