About the Book
“I’m a pragmatist,” said the headmaster. “I’m skeptical of anything old hat. I don’t like children being shackled to long-set values and many of the traditions we have to adhere to even when they’re useless. Things change. We must go with the changes and adapt. Children should be trusted more. They need to find out for themselves. It’s our job as educators to confront our pupils with challenging situations and help them cope.”
About the Author
After a checkered career consisting of many years in civil service to music teaching in Canada where she developed a taste for general teaching, she then returned to Scotland and college to qualify for this and concluded her teaching career as deputy head in a large primary school in the West Midlands.
While living in Edinburgh, she became involved in theosophy and enjoyed a short spell as honorary librarian in the theosophical library there. This gave her such food for thought which has never left her. Mind may be static, but thought is dynamic with potential available to everyone.
