David brings an ethical perspective to education. He has a linked discussion group for you to join:
He typically raises imaginative and relevant questions to encourage exchange of views, especially in the education context which is his background.
“Can an effective leader also be ethical? Can an ethical person be an effective leader?”
He engages in thinking about education now and into the future and is a keen exponent of the need for a fundamental rethink on the context, content and delivery of learning to children.
Resonates with the LBL aim to facilitate learning relevant to life and living. In particular, children learning to live ethically connects to LBL’s Community theme.
The Life-Based Learning system is based on the three areas of life: the self; other people; the physical, material world.
There are three aspects to our interaction with other people: effective and positive communication; maintenance of positive and lasting relationships; and active and cooperative contribution to the community. A positive ethical approach to the cultural, racial and religious diversity that makes up the UK is essential learning.
We blog regularly on the topic of new thinking and curriculum reform.
