It can be said that the current teaching and education is the focus, which is quite safe.
The tricky thing about discussing schools and education is that everyone has gone to school and we all feel like experts.
Most likely, there have been some changes in the school since you were there. Maybe. Hopefully.
A typical teaching day in 2018 is very different from 50, 30, 20 or even 10 years ago.
And while collaboration seems to be a new buzzword in the staff room, it's becoming an incredible weapon, not only can we combat the growing needs, accountability and change management of today's schools, but we need to develop more work.
Life balance, teacher ability, teacher identity and integration.
