Becoming Educated

Mar 28, 2022

This week I am joined by Harry Hudson, Harry is a History teacher at the West London Free School in Hammersmith, West London. He’s also a freelance writer and has written for a range of publications including The Times, The Telegraph and The Spectator.

In this weeks episode Harry and I discuss the following and so much more:

Why teaching has an image problem

Why money could be an issue in getting good people into teaching

Why the fact that everyone has been to school contributes to the image problem

How the explosion of awareness of cognitive science has enhanced the profession

What the many positives of being a teacher are

How we can change the image of teaching through opening our doors and sharing our bright spots with the public

This was a fascinating discussion with Harry and believe he has kickstarted a discussion into how we can really change the image of our most wonderful profession.

Get involved and share widely.

Keep the conversation going using #becomingeducated and tagging me @dnleslie
