18/05/11: David Price OBE on the Harris Student Commission
David has some very good things to say about the commission in his blog:
'...this is what students having agency in their own learning looks like. This is what happens when you place great trust and responsibility in student's capacity to be thoughtful, respectful, sensitive and creative: they never, ever let you down.
...fully implemented, they [the entitlements] are capable of transforming a previously 'top-down' hierarchy, into a real, democratic learning environment, and creating a genuine learning commons out of a high-performing, but ultimately disengaging, learning enclosure.
And, if you could do just one thing which would fundamentally change the learning relationships in your school, do this.'
