How Much Freedom Should A Teacher Have?

 

Let’s finally have a proper debate, then, in staff and department meetings. Here are 4 questions to start our thinking:

 

1. Where should there be obligation and where should there be freedom in choice of pedagogy?

 

2. How much variance should be built into curricula?

 

3. Where is there a clear set of bona fide “best practices” that must be used and used well if one is to be called a professional educator?

 

4. What should we do when teachers persist in doing things that are primarily comfortable for them instead of doing what best practice demands?
