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
